About

Jon is Professor of Sport and Exercise Biomechanics and Associate Dean, Research and Innovation, College of Health, Wellbeing and Life Sciences. In 2014, Jon was recognised by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and Royal Academy of Engineering as a Rising Star. Much of Jon's research is influenced by Ecological Dynamics - a contemporary theoretical approach in motor learning. He leads the Biomechanics Research Group which combines expertise in biomechanics, engineering, sensors, computer programming and motor learning to develop and use biomechanics and body morphology measurement systems outside of the lab, in more representative settings. A major aspect of Jon's work in this area is related to the use of consumer depth cameras in the analysis of body morphology, with affordable and accessible 3D surface imaging systems. Jon also has a keen interest in cycling biomechanics working in collaboration with colleagues within and outside of SHU on mechanics-related projects. In addition to his research, Jon teaches on the MSc Sports Engineering as well as the undergraduate programmes in Sport and Exercise Science.
