Dr. Carisa Harris Adamson

Dr. Carisa Harris started her career as a Physical Therapist with a master's degree from the University of California at San Francisco. She developed a keen interest in occupational health through her work in various occupational medicine clinics and eventually spent 10 years developing a company that provided onsite injury and prevention services to large self-insured companies. Dr. Harris returned the University of California at Berkeley to receive a PhD in Environmental Health Sciences. In 2011, she joined the Samuel Merritt University Physical Therapy Department as faculty teaching Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics, Research Methods and Clinic Management courses. Concurrently, she has been a part-time post doc at UC Berkeley working on a NIOSH-funded Upper Extremity Musculoskeletal Disorder Consortium project. The group pooled prospective data from six different research studies to assess the relations between physical risk factors and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS.) Her current research is focused on physical, personal and work psychosocial factors associated with work disability among those with CTS or other upper extremity disorders. She also performs lab-based exposure assessment and intervention studies on high risk occupational tasks.
