My current research interests include:
- The physiology of elite Kenyan distance runners
- The biomechanical study of the “skill” acquisition of barefoot running
- Fatigue and neuromuscular function in elite athletes with cerebral palsy
- Biomechanics and physiological characteristics of elite sprint kayakers
- Talent, training and sporting systems: How policy-makers, coaches and athletes should identify and manage talent for high performance success
