Personal profile

Biography

I am a Biomechanist who has experience working in a diverse range of health and medical settings. I have partnered with Industry and Government departments to deliver research projects and have worked in research and clinical education for undergraduate students, postgraduate students, and practising clinicians. I have a passion for encouraging those around me to aim for high quality and relevant outcomes in the research they complete. My career aim is to complete quality research to improve the overall health of the community and prevent unnecessary admissions into our over-stretched public health system.
