Biomechanical Engineer

I studied Engineering at Oxford University. Whilst this is a general engineering course, the part that interested me the most was biomedical engineering. Running is my passion and I soon realised that I could combine my work with my hobby by specialising in the field of biomechanics (looking at the way that people move). I stayed at Oxford to complete a D.Phil. and investigated the biomechanics of common running injuries.

After completing my D.Phil. I wanted to try and bring the technology that I had used in my research to real clinics and real runners. I founded Run3D Limited, which develops 3D gait analysis systems that can be used outside of the gait laboratory, by real clinicians treating real runners!
