Reiter researches traumatic elbow injuries and ways that physical therapy-based approaches can restore function.
“How can we train the best way possible, meet the demands of the Army, and keep people healthy and safe?” he asked.
Now he is about to graduate with a doctorate in mechanical engineering.
Reiter begins this summer as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Ultimately, he wants to run a lab researching the biomechanics of military-related injuries.
“I thought it would be impossible to do what I wanted because of my background,” Reiter said. “Looking back, WashU is the best place I could have ended up.”
