Hello! I graduated with my PhD in August 2017. My doctoral thesis investigated the validity and application of radio-frequency sensors to quantify the match movement profiles of elite and junior-elite female netball athletes. Currently, I am a Research Fellow at Victoria University in Melbourne, Australia. My role involves supervising postgraduate students whom are working on projects including profiling athlete physical output using time-series analysis, kick detection via wearable sensors and using spatiotemporal metrics to analyse team-sport behaviour. I also work with the Western Bulldogs Football Club, who play in the Australian Football League (AFL). I use R everyday to analyse, visualise and report on athlete performance or research data. I have created a blog to highlight the capabilities of R as a data visualisation, analytical and exploratory tool for sport science. Aside from performing research, I enjoy distance running, baking cakes/ slices/ scones/ anything sweet, being in the great Australian outdoors and spending time with my miniature dachshund puppy, Dudley!
