Brent is a Registered Physiotherapist from Vancouver, Canada. Brent is a University of Queensland Graduate School Scholar and is completing his Ph.D. full-time at the University of Queensland’s Sports Injury Rehabilitation and Prevention for Health (SIRPH) research centre in Brisbane, Australia. Brent’s doctoral research aims to develop medical criteria to clear athletes to return to sport from prevalent lower extremity tendinopathies using a supervised machine learning approach. Brent’s Honours research investigated the association between the location of knee pain and imaging or arthroscopic abnormalities, which lead to the development a novel diagnostic model to differentiate patellar tendinopathy (Jumper’s knee) from patellofemoral pain (Runner’s knee). Brent is experienced in sport-specific training and the rehabilitation and conditioning of athletic movement and uses the CORE Positioning and Control (CORE-PAC) movement strategy to reduce biomechanical risk factors for lower extremity injuries.
Brent continues to be involved with the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) True Sport and Safe Sport programs and has previously been involved with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Research Centres for the Prevention of Injury and Illness through the Australian International Olympic Committee Research Centre in Melbourne, Australia. Brent has presented scientific papers at internationally recognised sports physiotherapy, and sports medicine conferences and has published in high-impact scientific journals in the fields of injury prediction, musculoskeletal health, sports physiotherapy, and sports medicine.
