Alice Bullas is a Researcher (sport and health innovation) within the Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre with a specialism in 3D body imaging as a method of body measurement, biomechanics and applied sports science and technology research. Alice's work focuses on developing and delivering innovation opportunities with Sheffield City Region businesses. Alongside this Alice lectures within the Academy of Sport and Physical Activity, supports student engagement, is the parkrun Research Coordinator for the parkrun Research Board and supports other AWRC projects as and when the need arises.
Alice graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University with a first class honours BSc and MSc in Sports and Exercise Sciences in 2011. Her dissertations investigated the walking gait of dancers through the assessment of their kinetics and kinematics. During her studies Alice spend a semester abroad at Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand, actively contributed to her studies by acting as student representative on a number of platforms and engaged in a number of additional research projects. Alice joined CSER in January 2013 as a graduate intern focusing on the use of array electrodes in the application of peripheral electrical stimulation in the induction of motor cortical plasticity and the suitability of the Microsoft Kinect in head tracking for rehabilitation, before starting her PhD in January 2014. Followed by a PhD within the department on the importance of complex anthropometrics in the assessment of cyclist.

Alice Bullas is a Graduate Intern within the Centre for Sports Engineering Research with a specialism in 3D body imaging as a method of body measurement, biomechanics and applied sports science and technology research.
The Centre for Sports Engineering Research (CSER) is led by Dr David James. It is the world's largest academic group in sports engineering and an internationally renowned centre of excellence for research and knowledge transfer. The centre's work is based on four research disciplines; applied computing, biomechanics, design engineering, and skill acquisition. In each area, researchers develop fundamental knowledge and deliver applied solutions to enhance athletic performance, reduce injury and promote physical activity.
CSER works in partnership with many sport, health and commercial organisations. We are immensely proud of our work with Team GB Olympic, and Paralympic athletes, and we enjoy research partnerships with global organisations such as the International Tennis Federation, FIFA, and Adidas.
Area of expertise:
- 3D body imaging and human measurement
Notable media coverage:
- Speed with Guy Martin - Series 2 Episode 4: Gravity Racer
