Profile

Carly joined the Department for Health at the University of Bath in April 2015. She completed her BKin (2006) and MSc (2008) at the University of Calgary, and her PhD (2011) at Western University.

She was a Post Doctoral Fellow at the Sport Injury Prevention Research Centre at the University of Calgary from 2011-2015.

Carly’s primary research focus is on understanding the role of psychosocial and behavioural factors in sport injury risk and recovery.

Her other interests include the development of psychological intervention techniques to improve injury rehabilitation outcomes and the application of health behaviour change theories to sport injury prevention strategies. She has a particular interest in high performance sport, and minimising the effect of injury on performance.

Her research approach is grounded in an epidemiological perspective, with an emphasis on stakeholder engagement and knowledge translation.
