I joined the University from industry some 24 years ago. Initially joining as a technician in the Chemistry department I migrated to sports science about 11-12 years ago as more and more computer related equipment filtered into the department.  I compete in triathlons to keep fit and I am a long time computer and role-playing gamer.

Maintenance and running of the Biomechanics laboratory for teaching and student projects. Assistance of Academic researchers in their investigations and the design/development of project testing procedures. Specification and procurement of new equipment such as opto-electronic motion systems, force platforms and electromyography.
