Summary

Dr Stephanie King's area of expertise is in the movement patterns of clinical populations and the impact exercise interventions can have on these movements and the musculoskeletal system.

She graduated from UCLan with a degree in Sports Therapy before undertaking an MSc (by research) followed by a PhD at the University of Hull.

Dr King held Research Assistant and Associate Lecturer positions at Liverpool John Moores University before returning as a lecturer to the University of Hull in 2016.
