Personal profile


Associate Professor Jacqueline Alderson has been a member of faculty at the University of Western Australia since 2002. She teaches in the both the undergraduate and graduate curriculums though maintains a strong research focus having supervised; 41 honours (thesis), 4 masters and 18 doctoral students to completion. Jacqueline currently supervises a further 9 PhD and 2 honours candidates in the sport, clinical and occupational biomechanics domains. She has authored/co-authored 100+ peer-reviewed text books, book chapters, research papers and conference proceedings in the areas of sports performance, sports injury prevention and biomechanical modelling. She is a fellow and former director of the International Society of Biomechanics in Sport, and a former associate editor of Sports Biomechanics. Jacqueline has an extensive community and industry engagement portfolio that includes biomechanical consultancy /grant funding of > $2 million AUD from groups such as; the Australian Research Council, Australian Institute of sport and their state based affiliates, Cricket Australia, Swimming Australia, International Ccricket Council, Indian Premier League, Hockey Australia, New Zealand Accident Compensation Corporation, Fremantle Dockers Football Club and the Australian Automotive Cooperative Research Centre. A regular invited and keynote conference speaker, Jacqueline currently leads research teams in the areas of technology innovations and artificial intelligence/big data analytics in sport and health. Most importantly, she is easily recognized around campus as the academic with a constant four-legged shadow, her 14 yr old border terrier named Grace.
