Ebersole, Kyle

Associate Professor, College of Health Sciences, Department of Rehabilitation Sciences & Technology


Kyle Ebersole, Ph.D., LAT is the Director of the Human Performance & Sports Physiology Laboratory which conducts research focused on health, performance, and recovery in the professional and occupational athlete.  His research focuses on the integrative contributions of movement efficiency, muscle function, and the autonomic nervous system to performance enhancement through training, recovery and injury prevention strategies with an emphasis on professional baseball pitchers and the tactical athlete.  His research expertise coupled with his clinical background as a Licensed Athletic Trainer have supported a research model that engages community agencies along with students in the process of discovering new information and developing innovative solutions around health and performance.

His long-standing and ongoing research partnership with the City of Milwaukee Fire Department as well as surrounding suburban fire departments has led to new programming and/or strategies that advance the performance of firefighters, serving as an example of impactful translational science benefiting the community that surrounds UWM.

Dr. Ebersole serves as a Sport Science consultant with the Milwaukee Brewers and has earned certifications from the National Academy in Sports Medicine as a Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES) and a Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES).

Fun fact - When Kyle grows up, he might want to own a food truck.

I can offer...

I can offer discussion on a topic of interest, serve as a sounding board, and be a potential collaborator in the classroom or within research as it relates to performance enhancement in the occupational worker (i.e., firefighter, public works, etc).

Why do you think the LEC is important to UWM?

The LEC has re-energized my teaching and provided support for my approach to helping students master content with non-traditional pedagogical approaches that, in reality, are rooted in innovation and design thinking.  The LEC has taught me how innovation can be the link between student and faculty.
