Dr Matthew Ellison
University of Exeter, St Luke's Campus, Exeter, EX1 2LU, UK
I completed my undergraduate degree in Physics at Royal Holloway, University of London and my Masters degree in Sports Biomechanics at Loughborough University. With a particular interest in mathematical and computer simulation modelling of the human body. I subsequently joined the University of Exeter to undertake a PhD scholarship in Sport and Health Sciences. My PhD focussed on beam theory and finite element modelling approaches to estimating the stresses in the second metatarsal of runners, with a focus on developing models to investigate stress fracture risk in this population.
Following my PhD I joined the University of Lincoln in 2020 as part of a knowledge transfer partnership, investigating injury and performance during load carriage in police and military populations.
I rejoined the University of Exeter in 2022 as a Lecturer in Biomechanics.
2016 - 2020: PhD in Sport and Health Sciences, University of Exeter
2015 - 2016: MSc in Sports Biomechanics, Loughborough University
2004 - 2008: MSci in Physics, Royal Holloway, University of London
My research interests are modelling of internal loading and bone stress and its implications for bone health and injury.
Curent projects include:
Methods to measure bone loading during daily activities for those at risk of osteoporosis in order to develop interventions and technologies to ensure bone health is maintained with age.
