I have been involved preparing elite level athletes from grassroots to the Olympic level for the past 7 years. My former involvement in elite level sport has been within Sport Science and Strength and Conditioning departments, having gained experience in Australian Rules Football, Olympic Track Cycling and Professional Tennis. These experiences have helped me develop a comprehensive knowledge of athlete load management, physiological monitoring systems, strength and power development and sport specific conditioning. Over the past three years I have used this skillset to work specifically as a Rehabilitation Coordinator in elite Australian Rules Football. In this capacity my role has focused primarily on establishing a link between Medical, Strength and Conditioning, and Sport Science Departments to develop a systematic and scientific approach to injury rehabilitation.
I am currently in the final stages of completing my PhD which has focused on understanding the mechanisms that regulate post-exercise muscle recovery. Specifically, my research is trying to understand how processes of exercise-induced inflammation are linked to muscle adaptations associated with resistance exercise.
