Dr. Shelby Peel

Assistant Professor


Dr. Shelby Peel is an Assistant Professor in the School of Kinesiology & Nutrition at the University of Southern Mississippi. She completed a post-doctoral fellowship in 2021 through the Geneva Foundation at High Point University and the Womack Army Medical Center at Fort Bragg, NC. Dr. Peel earned a BS in Health and Human Performance, concentrating in Exercise and Sports Science from the University of Memphis in 2014, a MS in Health and Human Performance, concentrating in Exercise and Sports Science from the University of Memphis in 2016, and finally a MS in Statistics and a PhD in Kinesiology and Sport Studies, concentrating in Biomechanics, from the University of Tennessee in 2020. Her research focuses on injury prevention and rehabilitation mechanics in athletic populations. Dr. Peel has presented her work both nationally and internationally at conferences such as the American Society of Biomechanics, International Society of Biomechanics, and World Congress of Biomechanics.
