Jacqueline has always been curious about movement - whether it be helping surgeons make best practice decisions for their patients, helping AFL and Australian Hockey players avoid knee injuries, or advising the International Cricket Council on who might be "chucking" - you'll find her somewhere close with a camera. 

She holds a B.Sc with a first class honours and PhD in biomechanics and is a Professor and Tech Director of the Tech & Policy Lab at the University of Western Australia. Jacqueline is a fellow of the International Society of  Biomechanics in Sport (ISBS), an executive council member of the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) and has a wide and varied research history in sport and clinical biomechanics.

From the role of deep brain stimulation in modulating movement, understanding the loads causing injury in athletes, to capturing circus performers falling from the roof of her lab, she now travels the world speaking about her current passions - human engineering, wearable tech, artificial intelligence and its role in tracking, analysing and intervening in the human condition.
