Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD (as Co-Supervisor) - email supervisor to discuss availability.

I am a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, Accredited Exercise Scientist and Biomechanist at the University of Adelaide with over 10 years of experience in the field of exercise science. I have completed a PhD in Biomechanics, gaining extensive experience in exercise testing and the collection and analysis of biomechanical data using optical motion capture, inertial measurement units, EMG and force platforms.

My current research focuses in the field of human performance, combining methods in biomechanics, computer science and data analytics to develop and understand movement capabilities across both athletic and clinical populations. I have been involved in laboratory and field-based studies utilising a range of biomechanical techniques to assess movement including both optical motion capture (Vicon, AMTI) and wearables (inertial measurement units), while also adapting my programming skills in MATLAB, Python and R to automate the processing and analyses of such data.
