Reader in Human Movement and Sports Medicine, Cardiff Metropolitan University

My research has focused on understanding how and why we move the way we do, from both a performance and injury perspective. I obtained my PhD on efficient running from the University of Exeter and have since led several injury epidemiology projects working directly with sporting governing bodies to inform injury prevention and management policies. My interests lie in female athlete health, brain health and running, having received national and international research awards within the field. I specialise in postpartum return to sport and concussion.
