Kerry L. Knapp, PhD

Dr. Knapp has a strong educational and experience-based background. Educationally he is grounded in physical sciences, engineering, and computer modeling with bachelors and master degrees. His doctoral work, which was focused on analytical techniques, provides the theoretical for Northstar Biokinetics rigorous analytical process while recent studies and research in human functional anatomy, physiology, human neuroscience and human biomechanics form the basis for current case analysis work in injury biomechanics. Broad personal experiences in the areas of aviation, boating, sports, agriculture, and construction add experience-base understanding to all aspects of case analysis.

Dr. Knapp holds two master degrees (one in biomechanics) and a Ph.D. in forensic biomechanics. Professional affiliations include the society of Automotive Engineers, the American College of Sports Medicine, and the American Academy of Forensic Sciences. Dr. Knapp works full time in the area of injury biomechanics in addition to owning and managing Northstar Biokinetics.
