Dante Goss is a kinesiology doctoral student with a focus on sports medicine. He works as a research assistant in the Exercise and Sports Injury Laboratory (EASIL). His primary research interest is in improving physical activity for individuals with knee osteoarthritis through walking related interventions. He has complementary interests in gait biomechanics, physical activity monitoring, wearable sensors, fall risk, and healthy aging.

In addition to his research, Goss serves as a teaching assistant for undergraduate courses in the department of kinesiology and as vice president of the American Society of Biomechanics chapter at UVA.

As an undergraduate studying kinesiology, Goss worked in the Hubal Muscle Biology Laboratory for three years, researching gene expression in muscle biopsy samples and muscular fatigue related to high intensity interval training.
