Dr Hannah Rice
Lecturer in Biomechanics


Hannah Rice graduated from Loughborough University in Mathematics and Sport Science, before undertaking an MSc and PhD at the University of Exeter, under the supervision of Dr. Sharon Dixon. Hannah’s PhD research investigated risk factors and mechanisms for stress fractures in military recruits. Following her PhD research, Hannah moved to the Spaulding National Running Center, Harvard Medical School, in Cambridge, MA, USA, to conduct postdoctoral research under the mentorship of Professor Irene Davis. This research aimed to improve the understanding of overuse lower limb injuries. Specifically, Hannah focussed on two distinct areas during this postdoctoral training: gait retraining in individuals with an amputation; and the influence of different foot strike and footwear types on variables associated with lower limb running injuries.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Lower limb overuse running injuries
  • Altered gait with fatigue
  • Altered gait with load carriage
  • Gait retraining using real-time feedback
