Anthony Ciccone


I am an Assistant professor of exercise science with expertise in the area of neuromuscular fatigue and research methods. I have a PhD in Exercise science and am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. My main research interest is in the area of applied fatigue. Current projects include: 1) using near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to investigate potential physiologic mechanisms of non-local fatigue, 2) comparing the sensitivity of different jumps to monitor fatigue in athletes, 3) analyzing the performance and cognitive effects of caffeine in eSports, 4) Combine predictors of shooting performance in National Basketball Association players, 5) Performance monitoring in collegiate women's soccer athletes. Outside of the lab, you can spot me mountain biking, snowboarding, or playing hockey.
