Dr. Jewell is a Senior Biomechanist with ARCCA specializing in injury biomechanics, with a focus on injury mechanisms and tolerances based on analysis of available movement and force data. In addition, he has conducted product-based analyses for the design and implementation of sport protective equipment. He has also participated in numerous engineering test programs at ARCCA focused on how different automobile crash dynamics and occupant positions affect occupant responses and has performed tests to evaluate the response of motor vehicle components to a variety of loading conditions.
After receiving a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, he went on to obtain a Master of Science degree in Kinesiology, as well as his Ph.D., from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. His scientific research has focused on studying the biomechanics behind human movement, sport performance, and mechanisms of injury, while his graduate study focused on gait mechanics and the influence of muscle activity on the forces experienced throughout locomotion, particularly in regards to chronic and acute knee injury.
