Current Research

My research in the area of biomechanics of musculoskeletal health and injury prevention, uses combined experimental and computational modelling-based methods to investigate mechanisms of injury and develop effective exercise rehabilitation strategies for chronic musculoskeletal conditions that accompany age.
