Dr Chelsea Oxendale

Sport and Exercise Sciences

Faculty of Science

Chelsea is a Senior Lecturer in Applied Sport and Exercise Sciences, teaching across areas of Biomechanics, Strength and Conditioning and Professional Practice. Her PhD examined ‘The Internal and external demands of multidirectional running and the subsequent effect on side cut biomechanics in male and female team sport athletes’. Her interests involve understanding neuromuscular/biomechanical factors associated with lower limb injury risk, monitoring training load and injury prevention in team sports. Previously, Chelsea has undertaken lecturing and research roles at the University of Chester, University of Birmingham, and University of Bath, and has practical experience working in fitness, health, and elite sporting environments.
