Miranda Knight is an MPhil student within the Centre for Sports Engineering Research, studying the characteristics of breast motion. The aim of the research was to develop a new method to identify a region on the woman's torso where the breast tissue is not under tension, known as the neutral position.
During her time at Sheffield Hallam University, Miranda has lectured a 2nd year biomechanics module as well as provided final year project supervision for a Sports Technology student. She was also shortlisted for an award at the ISEA 2014 conference.
Prior to joining CSER in 2012, Miranda graduated from University of Wales, Aberystwyth with a First-class, BSc (hons) degree in sport and Exercise Science. She then joined CSER as an MSc Sports Engineering student in 2011 and graduated with merit.
In addition to her MPhil, Miranda has a keen interest in the biomechanics of human locomotion. Furthermore, Miranda is a racket sport enthusiast, particularly badminton.
