Personal profile

Area of academic expertise - outline

My PhD was an interspecies comparison of human and ovine spinal biomechanics that included kinematics, electromyography and magentic resonance imaging. From there I took up a post-doctoral position at the University of Edinburgh, where I continued my research work in the evaluation of muscle activation in low back pain. This work and my background as a physiotherapist have led me to develop a strong research interest in muscle morphology and electrophysiological behaviour in both rehabilitation and pain, and sport and performance.

Current research activities

  • Epimediology and risk factorsof running injuries
  • Efficacy of prehabilitation to prevent injuries in sport
  • Muscle morphology and electropysiological behaviour in low back pain

Desired research direction

My research goal is to develop rehabilitation-and sport-related muscle research at UWS, facilitated by a dedicated research group which will be recognised nationally and internationally.

Current teaching activities and interests

My main teaching activities include lecturing on the BSc Sport and Exercise Science degree, with a main focus on Anatomy, Functional Kinesiology, Biomechanics, and Research Methods. I am also part of the supervisory team of several PhD students in our department.
