    Ian brings his experience from being a coach with a professional rugby team into the classroom, aiming to build self-sufficient researchers who are able to solve a problem with little intervention from staff. Ian’s mix of lectures and practical sessions allow the students to put theory into practice and implement appropriate interventions when applicable.

    Ian’s research focusses mainly on loading strategies of resistance sled training, utilizing 3D motion capture cameras in conjunction with force platforms to perform his investigations.
