Capturing two-dimensional kinematics in short track speed skating: A multi-camera approach

Andy is one of three English Institute of Sport/ EPSRC case studentships in CSER. His PhD is focused on collecting accurate two-dimensional kinematic data of short track speed skaters using a multi-camera network. As part of his studentship, Andy provided performance analysis support to the British short track team in preparation for the 2014 Winter Olympics and continues to work closely with the team as part of his PhD studies.

Prior to starting his PhD, Andy graduated from the University of Salford in 2010 with a first class honours degree in Sports Equipment Design. Andy then went onto complete an MSc in Sports Engineering at Sheffield Hallam University. He graduated in 2011 with a distinction.
