Research profile and key clinical specialties

Lynn is Professor of Human Movement Science; honorary consultant physiotherapist; and holds an NIHR Senior Investigators Award.

She leads the Brain and Movement Research Group, a multidisciplinary team of clinicians, scientists and engineers with a focus on age-related gait and mobility disorders.

Research interests are in ageing and neurodegenerative disease focused on the motor and non-motor mechanisms of gait and falls, digital healthcare (the Brain digital biomarkers development), and evaluation of novel interventions.

Lynn leads large international consortia such as Mobilise-D. The methodological expertise of the group, however, encompasses a broad range of clinical specialties.

Two key publications

Possible PhD projects

  • Mobility loss and falls – biomarkers, risk and interventions.
  • Digital biomarkers for disease monitoring & feedback in PD and dementia and ageing – including disease modelling, for example.

More information

Lynn has extensive experience supervising PhDs from diverse range of funding sources, and has served on NIHR funding panels.
