PhD Biomechanics and Movement Science, University of Delaware, USA
I am a clinical rehabilitation scientist, and I also practice as a clinical rehabilitation consultant. My academic responsibilities and interests include: teaching clinical musculoskeletal anatomy, muscle physiology, communication skills in medicine, and topics in musculoskeletal injuries and ergonomics for post-graduate trainees in public health medicine; and research on learning challenges for first year medical students as they transition from a traditional teacher-centered curriculum to problem-based learning, musculoskeletal injuries (hip and other fragility fractures and sports injuries), developing affordable rehabilitation robotics and orthopaedic prototypes, and others. Clinically, I treat general physiotherapy and sports injury cases. A major area of practice and interest is testing injured claimants to determine their fitness for work and rehabilitating them for successful return to work. My volunteer/community work has been providing sports injury management at local, regional, and international events under BNSC and BNOC. From time to time I present topics at national sports conferences/workshops on a team-approach to managing athletes' injuries during and after events. We have launched MPhil/PhD programmes and I will be training students in rehabilitation science.

I have previously co-supervised a Stellenbosch University post-graduate student studying traumatic orthopaedic injuries.
My department has otherwise just launched MPhil/PhD programmes in biomedical sciences.
Besides collaborating with colleagues, my areas of focused supervision will include injury management, return-to-work, and rehabilitation and prototype technology development
