Mr Joe Moore
I joined the University of Portsmouth in 2019 as a Lecturer in Biomechanics with a specific focus on clinical research. I obtained an undergraduate degree in Sport and Exercise Science from the University of Bath, graduating in 2014, and went on to complete a PhD at the University of Lincoln. My PhD explored the effect anterior cruciate ligament injury and subsequent reconstructive surgery has on the execution of movement tasks. During this research, I worked alongside orthopaedic surgeons and research staff in United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust, and led the expansion of the project to a multi-site research collaboration with Anglia-Ruskin University, the University of Portsmouth, and the University of Ostrava, Czech Republic.
I have been an active member of the International Society of Biomechanics in Sport since 2015 attending a number of conferences and securing the Student Mini Research Grant in 2016 to help support my doctoral studies. I have visited and conducted research in a number of international research institutions such as Cardiff Metropolitan University, the University of Salzburg, Aspire Academy, and High Point University. Finally, I am the UK lead for promoting and marketing National Biomechanics Day, an annual international movement that aims to increase the profile of biomechanics through varying events.
My research interests look at exploring how the use of biomechanical measures, including non-linear variables within the theoretical framework of dynamical systems theory, can be used within clinical settings to help improve and inform treatment of pathologies. I also have an interest in the implementation of biofeedback into rehabilitation practices to help maximise recovery from sporting and occupational injuries. I also have interest in the use of biomechanical variables, such as lift velocity, in strength and conditioning practices.
