Mark A Robinson

Reader of Biomechanics

Liverpool John Moores University


Mark is a dedicated teacher, researcher and mentor. He has taught undergraduate and postgraduate biomechanics courses at LJMU for >18 years.

His research applies innovative methods and perspectives to problems in sport and clinical biomechanics. Completed PhD projects include biomechanical and neuromuscular ACL injury risk factors and the use of accelerometry for monitoring athletic exposure. His research collaborations integrating Statistical Parametric Mapping into biomechanics challenges conventional biomechanical data analysis and experimentation.

Mark recently hosted the 40th Conference of the International Society of Biomechanics in Sports at LJMU in Liverpool.

New projects, discussions, collaborations, students welcome.
