Michael Rainbow

Michael Rainbow received a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering (Biomechanics) in 2012 from Brown University, and completed a postdoctoral research position in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital – Harvard Medical School. He is currently an Assistant Professor at Queen’s University where he established the Skeletal Observation Laboratory. His research aims to understand the relationships between form, function, and dysfunction in multi-articular joint structures of the appendicular skeleton. To accomplish this, Dr. Rainbow uses a comparative approach that involves collaboration with researchers in evolutionary biology, orthopaedics, rehabilitation, computer science, exercise science, and motor control.
