Meeting Committee Lead, Member Support Pillar


Liz Bell, PhD is an assistant professor in Kinesiology at Towson University in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Her current research focuses on determining how features of movement affect human health and the long-term risk for chronic diseases. She has recently focused on modeling the consequences of pregnancy on knee joint loading and future knee health and is working to extend this research to include postpartum. She has over 10 years of experience in the biomechanics field. Previously, as a biomedical engineer for the Department of Defense, she examined how prosthetic devices can improve walking mechanics over advanced terrain. As a teacher and as director of the Bell Biomechanics Lab, she aims to help students succeed no matter what their background is and motivate them to use inquiry to keep learning throughout their own career. Beyond biomechanics Liz loves traveling and seeing indie rock shows with her husband and two boys.
