Senior Lecturer, Applied Sport and Exercise Science, University of East London

I am Chartered Physiotherapist and Senior Lecturer in Applied Sport and Exercise Science at the University of East London where I teach on the Master’s degree in Strength and Conditioning.

I have been fortunate as a Physiotherapist and Performance Specialist to work with many elite athletes including Track and Field World Record holders and 18 National Football League (NFL) first round draft picks.

In recent years my focus has switched to applying strength and conditioning to a more senior population with a particular focus of reducing falls in the elderly.

Recent research includes:
Wehner-Hewson N, Watts P, Buscombe R, Bourne N, Hewson D. Racial and Ethnic Differences in Falls Among Older Adults: a Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. J Racial Ethn Health Disparities. 2022 Dec;9(6):2427-2440. doi: 10.1007/s40615-021-01179-1. Epub 2021 Nov 16. PMID: 34786654; PMCID: PMC9633486.
