Senior Director, Performance Science, Los Angeles Dodgers
Megan Schroeder is the Senior Director of Performance Science for the Los Angeles Dodgers. In her role, she leverages new technologies to help understand how players can optimize their movement patterns for better health and on-field performance. To help achieve this goal, her team collaborates closely with the coaching staff as well as medical and performance groups.
Megan joined the Dodgers Research & Development team in 2015 after earning her PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University and completing a post-doctoral fellowship in Data Science. This unique role in a new and evolving field within baseball has allowed Megan to combine her passion for data and analysis with her background in biomechanics and engineering in ways that weren’t previously possible.
