Biography

Dr Scott Brennan is a lecturer in the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences at Liverpool John Moores University. He was awarded his PhD in 2017 from the University of Queensland (Australia), where he studied the influence of muscle-tendon power output and energetics on preferred and optimal movement patterns in cycling.

Scott is particularly interested in how the function of the nervous system, muscles and tendons affect our ability to produce force and power during movements like walking, running, jumping and cycling.
