Stephanie King

Lecturer in Biomechanics

Biography Steph graduated from UCLan with a degree in Sports Therapy in 2009 before undertaking an MSc (by research) followed by a PhD at the University of Hull. Her PhD thesis explored "Adaptations in plantarflexor muscle-tendon properties and their impact on gait in claudicants with peripheral arterial disease".

She held Research Assistant and Associate Lecturer positions at Liverpool John Moores University before returning as a lecturer to the University of Hull in 2016.
Research Interests Dr Stephanie King's area of research expertise is in the movement patterns of clinical populations and the impact exercise interventions can have on these movements and the musculoskeletal system.

Both her MSc and PhD focused on those with Peripheral Arterial Disease and Intermittent Claudication (PAD-IC) in collaboration with the Academic Vascular Unit at Hull Royal Infirmary.

Her overarching interests are in how interventions can impact on both the mechanistic aspects of the way people move, as well as the holistic effects on quality of life in older adults and clinical populations.
