Personal profile

Research interests

Ben has research interests in both sports and clinical biomechanics.

Within a sporting setting, Ben’s research primarily focuses on the influence of footwear upon the biomechanics of the foot and lower limb. Ben’s work looks to better understand the motion of the foot within the shoe and he is currently looking to explore how fatigue influences the foot shoe interaction.

In a clinical setting Ben is currently leading a research study looking at changes in lower limb function in different sub-groups of patients after total hip replacement. This work is being undertaken in collaboration with surgeons at Wrightington Hospital and researchers at other institutions. Ben also has an interest in how clinical measures relate to dynamic function.


Ben is a Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Biomechanics. He teaches on the BSc Sport and Exercise Science programme within the Department of Sport and Physical Activity.
