Reader in Biomechanics, Liverpool John Moores University

I gained an undergraduate degree in Human Biology and Sports Science at Loughborough University, U.K, before moving to the U.S.A for an MSc in Biomechanics at Penn State University. I then completed a doctorate in Biophysics at the University of Guelph in Canada and returned to the U.K to teach biomechanics at the University of Liverpool. Currently, I’m the programme leader for MSc Sport and Clinical Biomechanics at Liverpool John Moores University. My research interests have mainly been in the area of biomechanics of locomotion and lower limb loading (injury prevention). This has involved working with athletes and also sports footwear manufacturers in order to reduce the incidence of lower limb injury and help improve sports performance.
