Personal profile

Research interests

Cassie’s research focus falls into two main themes namely; optimisation of athletic performance and the understanding of movement coordination and its associated variability. Elite athletes compete at or close to the limits of human performance and Cassie’s research focuses on improving understanding of athletic-based activities with the ultimate goal of overcoming these limits. This is achieved through both theoretical and experimental methods. The nature of movement variability within sport and exercise has been received considerable attention in recent years and Cassie’s research uses innovative methods of analyses to investigate the role of this variability from both a performance and injury perspective in different populations.  Cassie's research interests can be summarised as;

  • Optimisation of athletic based performance
  • Analyses of movement coordination and its associated variability
  • The application of biomechanical principles to training theory
  • Injury predictors in different populations
