Dr. Nadia works for the University of Windsor. Her current research has her studying drummers as athletes and drummers as workers. She has worked with drummers such as Mike Mangini (Dream Theatre), Jeff Burrows (The Tea Party), Todd Sucherman (Styx), Barry Kerch (Shinedown), Rich Redmond (Jason Aldean) and more. She has monitored close to 40 drummers to date.

On the Industry 45 Podcast show, Shane talks to Nadia about her most recent findings, if the drum set up factors into the health of the drummer, exercise and nutrition, and efficiencies. Shane asked Nadia what this type of research would be like if it was done in 1984 (the meca of debauchery in Rock and Roll music). Nadia gave some great insight and commentary on today’s drummers.
