Meet the academic

Dr Tina Smith is a Senior Lecturer in Biomechanics at the University of Wolverhampton, who holds a PhD in sports biomechanics from Southern Cross University (Australia) and a BSc (Hons) in Sport Science from the University of Brighton. Her research interests are linked to the biomechanics of health, exercise and sport, and she has been a recipient of the University of Wolverhampton Early Researcher Award Scheme Fellowship, which focused on the mechanics of bone health and functional performance in sedentary and non-sedentary populations. Tina has been a member of an expert working party for Macmilian Cancer Support, writing physical activity guidelines for healthcare professionals working with people with metastatic bone disease, and has published in peer reviewed academic journals and presented work at international conferences, such as the Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics and World Congress of Biomechanics. Tina is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and has previously been awarded funding by the Higher Education Academy UK Centre for Biosciences to enhance teaching methods used within the physical sciences in Higher Education.
