Research

Research interests

Dan's research interests centre on the adaptation of existing technology and exploiting emerging technology, to evaluate aspects of sports performance that provide new information that can be used to enhance performance. Dan has used this approach in a variety of ways soccer, cycling and rowing. His primary interest is in cycling - monitoring load and modelling performance, and evaluating pedalling technique.

Dan also collaborates with a group of researchers who use machine learning to interrogate databases of sports results to reveal winning patterns of performance and to provide support when making strategic and tactical decisions.

Dan is a member of the Centre for Exercise & Sport Science.
