Dr Billy Senington
Academic and research departmentsSchool of Biosciences.
Billy is a Teaching Fellow in Sport and Exercise Science. During various academic posts at St. Mary’s University, University of Surrey and Bournemouth University, he has taught across a range of undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes including Sports Science, Sports Rehabilitation, Physiotherapy and Strength and Conditioning. He has worked with elite athletes across a number of sports including men’s and women’s football, tennis, rugby, motor racing and cricket both in performance and rehabilitation settings. Through the development of new technology (inertial sensors) his PhD research highlights biomechanical risk factors for lower back pain in elite junior and senior fast bowlers in cricket. This work has been disseminated internationally as conference proceedings and journal articles. Billy’s background in football and cricket, as well 12 years experience as a coach, has developed his passion to bridge to gap between research and practical applications in sport.
