Conor Power

Biography

Sport and physical activity have represented a large proportion of Conor's life and this is unlikely to change. Through participating, coaching and watching, he became fascinated with the outcome of movement and attempted to find the perfect technique for his chosen sports.

He was primarily a 100m and 200m runner, and triple jumper and therefore spent a great deal of time in and around Southampton's track learning from coaching and performance analysis experts. It was at this time he was introduced to invers dynamics and 3D motion capture. And although this was completely over his head he was completely struck by how maths and scientific study could answer the questions he had been asking for years. Soon after, he applied to university to study sport science and biomechanics and has been working in this field ever since. He has moved from sport to activity as he believes there is scope for greater impact on the general population here, but he still have an affinity for almost every sport he can think of.

Further information

While studying for his MSc and PhD, he has taught sport and exercise biomechanics at Winchester University and health science and anatomical biomechanics at Southampton University.
