Personal profile


Siobhan's research includes study into the alterations made in performing movements as a result of altered musculoskeletal biomechanics. She researches the effect of injury, ageing and the influence of physical activity on biomechanics and functional mobility. Siobhan teaches on various courses including anatomy and human movement and biomechanics.

Positions Held

2000 - present:
Senior Lecturer, Biomechanics

1996 - 2000:
Lecturer in Biomechanics, Dept of Sport Sciences, Brunel University


Ph.D., University of Ulster, Biomechanics, 1997
Title: The evaluation and development of a lower limb prosthesis.
B.A., Univeristy of Limerick, Physical Education and Mathematics, 1992

Research interests

My main research interest is pathomechanics, mechanisms and compentatory movement. Using motion and forceplate analysis I determine the mechanisms of altered performance in order to understand the  compensatory mechanisms to achieve a movement task. My research focusses on injury diagnosis and rehabilitation (ACL and Athletic Groin Pain) and exercise therapy and prosthetic design with lower limb amputees. I explore novel data analysis methods to further our mechanical understanding of the highly multivariate musculoskeletal system.
