Brief profile

Daniel is a Lecturer (Teaching and Research) in the Discipline of Podiatry at La Trobe University and he has more than 10 years of clinical, teaching and research experience. He completed his Bachelor of Podiatry and Post Graduate Diploma of Research Methodology at La Trobe University in 2000 and 2010, respectively. He is currently enrolled in a PhD (2014-present) which is focussing on foot orthoses for the prevention of injury. His teaching and research is focused on the biomechanical and clinical effects of foot orthoses, walking and running biomechanics and the prevention and management of lower extremity injuries. In 2017, Daniel became an Associate Editor of the free-access Journal of Foot and Ankle Research.
