Chris joined the University in September 2009 as Winchester's first lecturer in Sport and Exercise Biomechanics. Chris graduated in 2007 from the University of Portsmouth with a BSc (Hons) in aquatic sports science which was followed by a year in the field gaining experience applying the knowledge he had gained in an academic and commercial setting. In 2009 Chris followed up his qualifications with an MSc in Sports and Exercise Biomechanics from the University of Chichester having completed an in depth study into the effect of supportive insoles on foot function during cycling.
Chris has continued to develop since joining The University of Winchester, completing a PGCLTHE, gaining FHEA recognition and becoming a Senior Lecturer in 2014. In April 2015, Chris also embarked on a part time PhD investigating the potential role of intra-individual movement variability in cycling. This will be an on-going area of research which he will complete alongside his other responsibilities within the department.
Chris teaches on a number of programmes, is currently programme leader for BSc (Hons) Strength, Conditioning and Fitness and will also take on the role of acting programme leader for BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science in Semester 2 of the 2016/17 academic year.
