My research is largely focussed upon the role of walking and running gait biomechanics in the causation of and rehabilitation from (i) lower limb overuse injuries, and (ii) lower limb osteoarthritis. Specific projects include understanding the role of the hip muscles in injury development during military training, altered muscle function following ACL injury, and the interaction between mechanical joint stiffness and episodes of giving way in people with knee osteoarthritis.

Dr Mark Moresi started in the School of Exercise Science as a lecturer in Exercise Science in 2012. Prior to taking a position at ACU Mark worked as a Biomechanist with the NSW Institute of Sport providing sport science support for a number of sports including track and field.
Mark graduated from his PhD in 2012 which investigated the use of musculoskeletal kinetic models to predict injury and performance in high level adolescent female athletes. Mark's ongoing research interests include the biomechanics of sports techniques, sport injury and injury mechanisms, sport techniques and track and field with a specific interest in the influence of mechanical loading on injury mechanisms in elite athletes.

Ryan's research focuses around sports injury prevention and rehabilitation. His work is mainly within hamstring injury risk and interventions which can reduce the likelihood of an injury occurring.
His research has direct impact in elite sport, with practical outcomes and study designs being developed in consultation with Australian and International sporting organisations. These include the United States Olympic Committee, Arsenal Football Club, Manchester City Football Club, Port Adelaide Football Club, Richmond Australian Football Club and many others.
