I have been active in duathlon and triathlon since 2006, when I started grad school at UW-Madison to complete a PhD in civil engineering/transportation safety, where my dissertation work focused on how vehicles interacted with bicycles on rural roads (and was the first in the US to ever instrument a bicycle to collect real-time interactions). Since then, I have completed many sprint and oly distance triathlons and duathlons, multiple 70.3 triathlons, and Ironman Wisconsin in 2011. I also am an avid runner, and since moving to Asheville, North Carolina in 2019, have taken up trail running while still completing one or more triathlons each year.
