Lindsay works as a Research Associate at the University of Central Lancashire. She completed her PhD at UCLan in 2017 and is research active in the field of equine and human biomechanics. She is involved in several local and international equine research collaborations. As part of the Research Support Team, Lindsay is also involved in various research projects within the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing.
After completing her undergraduate degree at the University of Guelph, Lindsay moved from Canada to the UK to pursue her MSc in Equine Science at the University of the West of England. This is where Lindsay developed her interest in using surface electromyography (sEMG) and motion capture technologies to investigate how equine muscles facilitate movement. Her initial MSc work in this area was published. From here, Lindsay went on to pursue a PhD at the University of Central Lancashire, which she completed in April 2017. Lindsay has previously taught part-time on human biomechanics modules at UCLan and on an Equine Management HND course. She currently works as a Research Associate at UCLan, where she is working on various equine and human biomechanics projects under the supervision of Dr. Sarah Jane Hobbs. As part of the Research and Consultancy in Equine Surfaces (RACES) team, Lindsay has worked alongside researchers from UCLan, Myerscough College and Nottingham Trent University on various research and consultancy projects. She has presented her research at various conferences, including the International Conference on Equine and Canine Locomotion (ICEL) in 2016. Lindsay works as part of the Research Support Team, where she is also involved in various research projects within the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing.
