Kieran is a rising junior majoring in biomechanical engineering. His research in the Human Performance Lab is focused on testing the efficacy of a six week biomechanical intervention program designed for varsity athletes who are at high risk of ACL injury. The research involves the utilization of 3D motion analysis software to capture and analyze data. Upon graduation, he plans to pursue medical school. Kieran also competes on the varsity sailing team at Stanford during the academic year.
