Senior Lecturer in Biomechanics

I am Senior Lecturer in biomechanics with a background in clinical biomechanics of the hip (PhD). Currently, I am Programme Leader for BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Sciences. I have a keen interest in sport and I'm the sports scientist with an elite level women's rugby union team.


Teaching and supervision

I am Programme Leader for BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Sciences.

My main focus is on sport and exercise biomechanics across the undergraduate and postgraduate sport programmes and I am currently module leader for SSP257 Sport and Exercise Biomechanics 1, SSPM04 Applied Sport and Exercise Biomechanics and SSPM07 Independent Learning Module.

I teach on the following modules:
Biomechanics (Level 4, 5, 6 and 7)
Performance Analysis (Level 5)
Personal, Professional Development (Level 4)
Research Project Supervision (Level 6 and 7 + PhD supervision)

Research interests for potential research students

  • Player demands in team sports, focusing on GPS and microsensor devices, session RPE workload and physical tests
  • Biomechanics in rugby union
  • Understanding the diabetic foot
  • Implementation of marking rubrics and student perceptions

Research

I have an interest in rugby union, focusing on elite women's rugby.  My research involves examining the match demands and physical capabilities of the players and how this affects success. I am also interested in the effect of diabetes on lower limb mechanics.
