John is currently a Reader in Movement Biomechanics at the University of Bradford. John has a background in sport science and bioengineering. He joined the university in 2002 as post-doctoral research assistant in the School of Optometry and Vision Science, where he then held two research fellowships; one from the Health Foundation investigating the impact of correctable visual impairment upon balance and mobility in elderly and young subjects; and the other as an RCUK Academic fellow investigating Medical & Healthcare Technology. He moved to the School of Engineering in 2012. John’s interests are in developing and using biomechanical modelling to determine the movement adaptations and/or compensatory mechanisms used for locomotion by individuals with musculo-skeletal abnormalities, problems or dysfunction, and/or by those with sensory impairment. John is a registered Clinical Scientist (Health Professions Council, UK), a member of the International Society of Biomechanics and International Society for Posture and Gait Research, and a Fellow of The Higher Education Academy.
