For real change to occur, expecting others to make it happen is not the answer. You need to be the change you want to see.


After completing her PhD at the University of Exeter, where she focused on optimising female running gait, Izzy completed a two-year post-doctoral position at Cardiff Metropolitan University working directly with sports governing bodies to inform injury prevention and management policies. Izzy’s current research focuses on female athlete health, sports injury epidemiology and lower limb rehabilitation. She has received national and international research awards and is an Associate Editor for the British Journal of Sports Medicine and Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport. Alongside this work, she has secured over £1.4 million in funding. Current projects focus on developing injury prevention strategies in the Women’s rugby game, specifically targeting brain and pelvic health, as well as improving postpartum return to sport clinical guidance.
