Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in the modelling and simulation of human movement to investigate injury mechanisms and understand human function. I truly believe in the use of predictive models and in silico simulations and their application in clinical settings for improving the monitoring and assessment of musculoskeletal diseases.

My research is focused on the use of an integrated approach that includes in vivo and in vitro experimental methodologies with in silico methods such as musculoskeeltal modelling and finite element analysis.

My current research line includes:

  • Injury Biomechanics:
  • The analysis of cervical spine injury mechanisms in rugby and horse racing;
  • Analsis of hamstring injury in sprint running;
  • Clinical Biomechanics:
  • Biomechanical assessment and optimised treatment identification in axial Spondyloarthritis;
  • Estimation of joint loading in partial gravity situations;
  • Sport Biomechanics:
  • Biomechanical analysis of rugby and horse racing activities;
  • Computer simulation of sprint running;

Willing to supervise doctoral students
