Researcher biography

Emily graduated from the University of Exeter (UK) with a Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science (Hons class I) in 2014. She later pursued a Masters in Sports Biomechanics at Loughborough University (UK) where her dissertation project investigated how fatigue and loading during running affected movement variability and how this could help explain increased injury incidence in female military recruits. During this time Emily worked as a performance analyst for British Athletics and Para Athletics attending major national and international events which culminated in working as the team performance analyst for the 2017 World Para Athletics Championships in London. Emily also completed a two year strength and conditioning internship during her Master’s degree with Loughborough Sport assisting in the preparation and rehabilitation of a wide range of athletes in both team and individual sports. After graduating in 2017, she moved to Australia to commence her PhD studies.
