Personal profile

Research Interests

My research interests include the biomechanics and motor control of exercise and sports performance across the life course. Currently I am undergoing projects on the development of fundamental movement skills in children and the effect of conditioning programmes on activities of daily living in the elderly. I have a keen interest in sprint running in field sports and the effects of fatigue on the biomechanics of these dynamic movements.


Prior to my role at Coventry University I was the musculoskeletal biomechanics research coordinator in the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial college London. In 2014 I completed my PhD in Biomechanics at Cardiff Metropolitan University. In 2010 I graduated with a first class Bsc (Hons) in Sport and Exercise Science from the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff.
