Profile Summary

Chelsea joined the University as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in April 2016. Chelsea is currently based at the Manchester Institute of Health and Performance (MIHP). Chelsea’s role at the MIHP includes developing biomechanical assessments for elite athletes as well as contributing to a number of research projects. Chelsea’s research includes lower body biomechanics during sport specific movements, shoe-surface interactions and biomechanical factors associated with ankle and knee injuries and the development of knee osteoarthritis. Chelsea’s PhD was a collaborative project with the International Tennis Federation working with existing projects to understanding players’ perceptions and biomechanical response to tennis surfaces to provide recommendations and validations for the development of mechanical tests to better characterise tennis surfaces. Chelsea previously lectured at the University of St Mark and St John on a range of degree programmes including Sport and Health Sciences, Sport Therapy, Physical Education (BEd) and Strength and Conditioning.
