Nat Sch Physiotherapy
I am an Australian registered Physiotherapist with over 20 years of clinical experience in both the public and private health sectors in metropolitan and rural and remote NSW. My main areas of interest are in musculoskeletal and orthopaedics with particular interest in the management of the temporomandibular joint, cervical spine and headache. I completed my PhD in 2017 at the Faculty of Dentistry, The University of Sydney, investigating the effects of specific resistance exercise on the recruitment patterns of the muscles of mastication. As part of my PhD studies and our ongoing research and academic collaborations, I completed part of my requirements for my PhD at Tohoku University, Sendai and Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Japan. In 2009 I received an inaugural Prime Minister's Australia Asia Endeavour Award which facilitated the completion of these PhD studies.
I am currently a Lecturer in Physiotherapy at ACU with a research and teaching focus. One of my roles includes the supervision of Bachelor of Physiotherapy Honours students. I have presented at numerous local and international conferences and have several successful competitive, peer reviewed research grants.
