Clinically Gemma continues to work for the English Institute of Sport delivering across Multi-Sport Summer and Winter Olympic and Paralympic programmes, and has recently completed her PhD under the supervision of Drs Lee Herrington and Allan Munro at the University of Salford. The overall aim of her PhD was to establish the validity and reliability of a qualitative musculoskeletal profiling tool with the specific aim of deepening understanding of how movement quality changes during growth and maturation within elite and non-elite multi-sport adolescent populations. She has presented at national and international conferences concerning the topic of her PhD. She has also provided consultancy services to British Ice Skating and Manchester City Women.
Gemma has a particular interest in musculoskeletal profiling, return to play and the adolescent athlete at both the elite and recreational levels. She had undertaken and completed research on Upper Limb monitoring of power output around the shoulder, musculoskeletal profiling of the lower limb, monitoring of movement quality in the developing adolescent, and injury surveillance studies.
