PhD candidate and honours supervision
Higher degrees by research
Accredited to supervise Masters & Doctoral students as Associate Supervisor.
PhD topics and outlines
Biomechanics and Technology in walking and running: The project will involve innovative devices and procedures to improve walking and running, and to reduce the risk for injuries. It will also look at improving the analysis and interpretation of movement performance in sport.
Gait analysis and muscle strength after orthopaedic procedures: The laboratory gait evaluation included simultaneous recording of body kinematics, kinetics, and muscle activation patterns in patients walking unassisted at their natural cadence. Exploring the affect of orthopaedic procedures using 3D gait analyis and gait related functional activities.
Available to supervise honours students.

Inertial sensor technology to reduce ground impact during running: Tibial stress fractures are common injuries in runners. Runners with tibial stress fractures showed tibial peak positive acceleration (PPA) almost twice as large as healthy controls. Visual and Audio biofeedback of tibial PPA during running can be used as a method of gait retraining to reduce PPAs. This project will investigate this.
SMART Wheelchair: Utilising wearable sensor technology in wheelchair, and understanding human interaction with the wheelchair.
