Biography

I completed my PhD at Deakin University (Melbourne) in 2004 under the supervision of Professor Tony Sparrow. I then moved to The Pennsylvania State University where I took a Postdoctoral research position in the Motor Control Laboratory led by Professor Mark Latash. I have been teaching and researching within the School of Sport Science, Exercise and Health since 2005.
