Lecturer in Sports Medicine and Biomechanics, Cardiff Metropolitan University

I consider how running biomechanics can be altered to reduce injury risk and/or improve performance.

Additionally, I develop techniques to perform running gait retraining (altering biomechanics) based on motor control strategies. I am involved in several collaborations focusing on injury prevention, management and rehabilitation in sport with medical practitioners (e.g. Sports Surgery Clinic, Dublin), national governing bodies (e.g. Welsh Rugby Union) and strength and conditioning coaches.
