Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

Most people manage their knee osteoarthritis without surgery. A framework for chronic disease management and better quality of life, includes access to timely and expert physiotherapy, exercise, pain and diet management.

Project 1: Co-design of research with consumers for management of knee osteoarthritis. Project 2: Can physiotherapy movement retraining, change the way people move their knees, and hence factors influencing progression of knee osteoarthritis.

I am currently available to supervise honours, Master or PhD students in the fields of Physiotherapy, biomechanics, clinical sciences, health, orthopaedic surgery and translation of research into practice.
I have a particular interest in clinical outcomes from physiotherapy and surgical interventions, as well as implementation of evidence into clinical practice and lifestyle change.
One of the most important things in starting a PhD is the relationship with your supervisor. I am happy to talk to potential students, to help them think through how they choose their supervisor, university and project and act as mentor.
