I am a Research Scientist. With over 15 years of experience, I have developed advanced skills in data analytics, machine learning, mathematical modeling, and research & development. I am Research Fellow at the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, specializing in applying data science and wearable devices to solve problems in health, biomechanics, and sports. In my role, I leverage wearables to study human movement and physiology, providing actionable insights that drive innovation and improve health outcomes. My work involves collaborating with interdisciplinary teams to integrate data-driven solutions that enhance performance and well-being.

Research Interests

  • Advancements in Real-World Gait Analysis
    This line of research explores the development and implementation of advanced protocols and algorithms to study human gait in natural environments. By leveraging electronic devices and sensor data, researchers aim to gain a comprehensive understanding of movement patterns and behaviours. These insights have the potential to revolutionise various fields, including healthcare, where they can aid in diagnosing and monitoring conditions such as Parkinson's disease and stroke recovery, as well as in sports science, by enhancing performance and preventing injuries. The ultimate goal is to translate these findings into practical applications that improve quality of life and optimise human performance.
