Personal profile

Research interests

Analysis of how human movement, movement coordiantion and their variability relate with performance, motor skills, skills acquisition and injury, carried out through conventional and dynamical systems approaches.

Integrated assessment of neuro-motor skills and motor learning/adaptation to understand injury mechanism and promote injury prevention strategies.

Biomechanics of (sports) movements (e.g. rugby, race walking, jumping, weightlifting) for performance evaluation and injury prevention.

Footwear biomechanics.

Functional assessment of human motion in clinics, ergonomics and sport.

Health technologies.

Other responsibilities

Biomechanics Group coordinator, Department for Health, University of Bath (UK)


Willing to supervise doctoral students

I am willing to supervise PhD students in the area of applied biomechanics and motor control (e.g., sport technique for performance and/or injury prevention; sport technologies and data science applied to movement analysis; assessment of skills and coordination in relation to training, motor learning, rehabilitation and/or specific pathologies). I welcome ideas for interdisciplinary projects and collaboration.
