Dr. Matt Jordan has been a performance consultant working with elite athletes over six Olympic Winter Games. Matt holds a Master of Science in Exercise and Neuromuscular Physiology, and a PhD in Medical Science. His research focuses on neuromuscular adaptations to resistance training and knee injury/re-injury prevention. A key method in his research is the development of neuromuscular testing techniques that can be used to track and monitor athletes as they recover from knee injuries to forecast recovery and improve rehabilitation. His area of expertise is the interface between applied sport science and human performance with a special interest in exercise prescription, neuromuscular adaptations to exercise and athlete monitoring. Matt is currently the Director of Sport Science at the Canadian Sport Institute Calgary (CSIC). He provides technical mentorship and leadership to a multi-disciplinary team of high-performance sport science and sport medicine practitioners and directs a research program out of the CSIC Strength and Power Laboratory. Matt holds Adjunct Professorships in the Faculty of Kinesiology at the University of Calgary and at Edith Cowan University in Perth, Australia where he supervises Master and PhD level graduate students. He is a frequent presenter at international conferences in the areas of injury prevention, athlete monitoring, training program design for elite athletes, and strength and power testing methodologies.

His area of expertise is the interface between coaching and science with a special interest in program design for elite athletes; assessing neuromuscular adaptations to strength/power training; athlete monitoring; neuromuscular testing; knee injury prevention; and return to sport neuromuscular monitoring after knee injuries. Throughout his career as a strength coach/sport scientist, Matt has consulted with more than 30 Olympic and World Championship medalists. He also provides his expertise to high performance organizations in the NHL, NBA, NFL and military.

Matt is currently the Director of Sport Science (Strength & Power/ACL Return to Sport) at the Canadian Sport Institute Calgary (CSIC). His position involves technical mentorship of high performance strength and conditioning coaches, directing research/innovation projects in the CSIC Strength and Power Laboratory, and leading a multi-disciplinary team of practitioners to optimize athlete performance. Matt is an Adjunct Professor in the Faculty of Kinesiology at the University of Calgary and is a frequent presenter at international conferences in the areas of injury prevention, athlete monitoring, training program design for elite athletes, and strength and power testing methodologies.
