Sport and Exercise Sciences

Harry completed his undergraduate degree in physiotherapy at The University of Liverpool before completing a masters degree in Sport & Clinical Biomechanics at LJMU. A passion for understanding the complex ways in which human movement is achieved along with a desire to improve the understanding of the functional difficulties presented by cerebral palsy has led Harry to undertake a PhD project at LJMU. Alongside his PhD studies, Harry is an accredited strength & conditioning coach providing support to a number of LJMU sports scholars as well as working within other organisations.

PhD project Title: A 'level-headed' approach to improving activities of daily living in children with cerebral palsy
Supervisors: Dr Richard Foster, Dr Thomas O'Brien & Prof Gabor Barton.

PhD Overview: Harry is aiming to increase the understanding of the role of postural head and trunk control on the functional ability of children with cerebral palsy. Through this programme of work Harry hopes to explore the nature of the postural instability of the head experienced by children with cerebral palsy as well as exploring the effect this may have on the sensory systems located within the head. Before drawing conclusions as to how this complex system impairs functional movement.
