Dr Mark Moresi - Nat Sch Exercise Science (Faculty of Health Sciences)

Fully accredited supervisor - Can supervise as principal supervisor


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.
