My academic track record includes over 150 publications, multiple grants and the supervisions of several domestic and international postgraduate students. I am a regular reviewer for several national and international funding bodies as well as top-ranked scientific journals such Nature and PLoS.
My strongest expertise in Biomechanics relates to the development of biomechanical tools and improvement of basic knowledge of rehabilitation and locomotion of individuals with lower limb loss fitted with osseointegrated implant and socket. I am currently considered as one of the very few independent experts in the clinical benefits of bone-anchored prostheses.
I have also developed a unique expertise in the development of biomechanical tools and improving basic knowledge of the performance of athletes with a disability (i.e., stationary throwers) in motion analysis laboratory as well as during training sessions and competitions (e.g., National Championships, World Championships, Paralympic Games).
My initial research interests focused on the Biomechanics. However, I have made a significant effort over the last 10 years to create opportunities to be involved in multiple projects focusing on other exercise science and health-related issues (..
