Biography

Mark is a dedicated teacher, researcher and mentor. He teaches undergraduate and postgraduate biomechanics courses at LJMU and has been programme leader of BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science for five years. His research applies innovative methods and perspectives to problems in sport and clinical biomechanics.

He has supervised PhD projects in the areas of biomechanical and neuromuscular ACL injury risk factors and supervised award winning PhD students exploring the use of accelerometry for monitoring athletic exposure. Perhaps most well-known is his research integrating Statistical Parametric Mapping into biomechanics, through this he challenges conventional biomechanical data analysis and experimentation.

For new projects, discussions, collaborations or to explore PhD/post-doc funding opportunities, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
