Dr Genevieve Williams

Lecturer

 3899

 Richards Building RB109

 

Richard's Building, University of Exeter, St Luke's Campus, Heavitree Road, Exeter, EX1 2LU, UK

Overview

Dr Genevieve Williams' research interest lie in the coordination and control of human movement. Particularly, in how the stability and adaptability of the dynamics of movement change as a function of skill level, perturbation, ageing or pathology. 

Dr Williams is part of the Human Movement Science group, and the Exeter Biomechanics Research Team (ExBiRT). She teaches undergraduate and post-graduate biomechanics in Sport and Health Sciences. 

Qualifications

PhD, BSc (Hons), PGcert HE, FHEA

Career

Dr Williams completed her PhD thesis at Cardiff Metropolitan University. She held Post-Doctoral roles in Kinesiology at the University of Massachusetts, and The Penn State University. After Lecturing at Anglia Ruskin University, she joined the University of Exeter in 2017.
