My main research interest at present is the clinical assessment of lower limb biomechanics, particularly of the knee, in arthritis. I am also interested in treatments and methods of preventing disease progression in osteoarthritis. Other research interests include outcomes after knee replacement surgery as well as the health economics and assessment of novel devices in orthopaedic surgery.
As a STEM Ambassador, I visit local schools in Manchester at least once a month to promote interest in STEM subjects. The activities I am involved with include attending career evenings, teaching particular subjects, interview preparation with pupils, and general education of less common STEM subjects such as biomedical engineering.
I also involve myself in events aimed at engaging members of the public in research.
Involving patients in our research is also a major priority of mine. I often host focus groups with patients that are aimed at directing our future research in osteaorthritis.
