Gannon faculty are highly regarded as experts in their fields, with their works and insights frequently published in sources found across platforms of research, literary works, journalism and more.
Catch up with a few of our recently published Gannon experts here:
Dr. Jeff Bloodworth, a fellow with the Washington, D.C.-based Truman National Security Project and Professor of History, Co-Director of Gannon’s School of Public Service & Global Affairs, published an academic and personal article titled “My Best Friend Died From Loneliness” in The Free Press, detailing with the topic of Deaths of Despair. The piece deals with the “academic” topic, through the lives and deaths of several people of close personal relation to Bloodworth, including five family members.
“We have an epidemic in our midst,” Bloodworth said, “one that has been chronicled in a book by Nobel Prize-winning authors, yet somehow this escapes real notice and attention. I want to do my small piece in changing that.”
Dr. Xiaoxu Ji, Ranuki Hettiarachchige, Alexa Littman, Dr. David Piovesan, of Gannon’s Biomedical Engineering Program collaborated with Dr. Nicole Lavery of the Occupational Therapy Program to publish a piece titled, Prevent Workers from Injuries in the Brewing Company via Using Digital Human Modelling Technology in Applied Sciences.
“A large percentage of musculoskeletal disorder cases occur in brewing companies. The aim of this research study is to evaluate the risk of injuries for workers in the local brewing industry by integrating the actual human motion, which was captured by the Xsens MVN Awinda motion tracking system, with the JACK Siemens ergonomics tools.”
Dr. Eric Brownlee was featured in a Marketing Brew piece titled How sports management and marketing students get the Super Bowl on their resumes, speaking on the experience Gannon business students have to work during major sporting events like the Super Bowl, X Games and MLB Draft.
