About

Dr. Jamie Pigman received a Ph.D. in Biomechanics and Movement Science from the University of Delaware. His research focused on exercise interventions aimed to improve balance and reduce falls in individuals with chronic stroke, as well as children with Cerebral Palsy. Dr. Pigman completed a B.S. and M.A. in Exercise Science from Montclair State University. He researched how backpack design affects energy expenditure and joint loading during walking.

Prior to pursuing higher education, Jamie was a Fleet Marine Force Corpsman (medic). One of his obligations was to teach life-saving first-aid. Having this responsibility helped him develop skills in teaching individuals that come from diverse backgrounds and cultures, as well as with varying levels of education.

Dr. Pigman strives to effectively transfer knowledge to those he teaches, as well as to provide mentoring that ensures students finish their education with the skills, experience, and confidence that they will need to be successful.
