Research

Research Interests

My research is primarily concerned with the judicious exploitation of advances in technology to enhance human performance in health and sport.  Recent years have witnessed an explosion in the availability of inexpensive sensors and neuroprosthetic devices that open up a wide range of possibilities to the rehabilitation and sport science community.  However, the application of these technology platforms to specific needs in health and sport is not a straightforward process and requires extensive input from a variety of stakeholders, including technologists, end user groups and relevant application domain experts.  In my research I work closely with other healthcare practitioners, social scientists, computer scientists, and biomedical engineers to develop and evaluate new applications in health and sport using a range of technology platforms.  Examples of ongoing or recently completed projects include:

a.       
Developed a novel plastic optical fiber sensor for measurement and control of spinal posture in the workplace.  I

b.        Use of inertial sensors to develop therapeutic exergaming applications for sports rehabilitation (currently in clinical testing phase)

c.        Design and field testing of custom measurement and feedback solutions for sports performance enhancement. 

2.        Design and validation of novel electrical muscle stimulation technologies.  Applications include EMS solutions for ¿

a.        Stress urinary incontinence

b.        Obesity

c.        Chronic low back pain

d.        Heart failure.

3.        Identification of causes of and optimal intervention strategies for recurrent musculoskeletal injuries such as patellofemoral pain and ankle instability.  In this work we have identified the motor control deficit that is associated with dysfunctional control of ankle stability during dynamic loading activities and have evaluated the impact of various intervention strategies on this control.

Teaching

Teaching Philosophy

My teaching philosophy is based on an open and friendly approach to my student cohort, breaking down complex topics and facilitating learning in a layered approach, and consistently striving to become a better teacher as my career progresses.
 

Enhancement of Teaching

I have consistently enhanced my teaching (in the classroom and in student supervision) through a variety of methods including: Analysis of teaching styles of my colleagues; Peer review and feedback from colleagues; Feedback from Students (variety of methods from questionnaires to focus groups); Graduate surveys; Employer Surveys; Debriefings with clinical specialists; Curriculum review with students, colleagues, and other stakeholders; Attendance at Teaching and Learning meetings, analysis of examination results, and Participation in UCD Teaching & Learning enhancement programmes. When I started teaching I primarily delivered lecture and tutorial content to students in the classroom/laboratory and assessed them using written papers. I have gradually changed the focus to spend more time on interactive problem solving sessions and setting the students challenges that are best solved by working in groups using data that is self generated. My modules are now more likely to be assessed using presentations and term papers/portfolios than the traditional written examination. I find that less formal methods of feedback acquisition, such as focus groups or discussions with graduate students/colleagues are more effective and easier to respond to than use of questionnaires. The breakdown of the issues is more interactive and tends to lead to more effective changes being introduced as a result.

Review and Enhancement of Curriculum

As my teaching expertise has progressed, I have also evolved in my approach to module design and evaluation. The 2 modules that I currently coordinate include a variety of delivery and assessment methodologies that are designed to enhance student learning. In Testing Human Performance I have structured a series of practical laboratory sessions and tutorials around a core set of classroom lectures. Students are evaluated by means of an end of term written paper and an assignment that is designed to enhance their learning from the first day of the module. This assignment is based on them completing a report on their personal fitness test results that they obtain through working in groups in lab sessions. The associated lab sessions are facilitated with a custom written course handbook that students use to come prepared to the laboratory. This approach facilitates a very efficient learning environment for students throughout the module, which would not be the case if we simply had an end of term paper. In another module, Case Study in Sport Science, I have included a student presentation to their peers in the module assessment strategy in order to enhance their presentation skills. This approach is based on a strategy that we have adopted throughout the BSc HPS stage 3 to help prepare students for the challenges they face on graduation.

Developing as a Teacher

As outlined in previous sections, my journey as a teacher is a constantly evolving one and I have engaged in a wide variety of strategies that have helped me to improve as a teacher and keep abreast of new developments in my specific field of teaching. I have benefited greatly from participation in UCD Teaching & Learning enhancement programmes. Some examples of courses that I have attended include 'How to be an Effective PhD Supervisor', 'Research and Professional Development Planning', 'Maintaining a Teaching Portfolio', 'Providing students with effective feedback', and Blackboard/e-learning training programmes. I have also benefited from attendance at thematic education strategy/technology sessions at major conferences such as the American Physical Therapy Association Combined Sections Meeting, the IEEE Engineering in Medicine & Biology Conference, and meetings of European Network of Physiotherapists in Higher Education, and Chartered Physiotherapists in Education (our local group). I also have helped to share my expertise in teaching with my graduate students who help me to deliver tutorials (this process also provides me with valuable feedback and learning opportunities) and are tasked with enhancing their ability to communicate the outputs of their own research at scientific meetings.

Innovation & Leadership

I have served as the Dean of Physiotherapy in UCD, assuming responsibility for the academic integrity of all Physiotherapy programmes. I also received a Medical Faculty Teacher of the Year award in recognition of my teaching quality.
