About the Speaker

Nick graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2005 with a PhD in Biomechanics. He subsequently joined Northumbria University where he is now Professor of Aerospace Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Director of Postgraduate Research for the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences.

Nick works with a range of collaborators from around the world in research relating to aspects of musculoskeletal dysfunction.  Most notably, he has worked closely with the European Space Agency (ESA) since 2009 due to the relevance of deep spinal muscle deconditioning to astronaut rehabilitation.  As a result of this collaboration, Nick has acted as an advisor to ESA in relation to exercise after spaceflight.

Nick is an Executive Board member of the UK Space Life and Biomedical Sciences Association, where he chairs a steering group developing a national strategy for space biomedicine related to ageing.  He is also an editorial board member of the journal Sports Engineering, Journal of Functional Morphology and Kinesiology, and the World Journal of Orthopaedics, and is Associate Editor for the Journal of Orthopaedics and Trauma.
