Overview

Glen Lichtwark is a Associate Professor in the School of Human Movement Studies. He was awarded his PhD in 2005 from University College London (UK), where he studied the influence of muscle and tendon elasticity on power output and energetics of muscle. He has subsequently worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Royal Veterinary College (UK), Imperial College (UK) and more recently at Griffith University (2007-2009).

Glen is particularly interested in how elasticity in muscles and tendons in the lower leg and foot influence the function of these muscles and what impact this has on the ability to generate force or perform controlled movements.

Research Impacts

The outcomes from this research will be an advanced understanding of muscle function to improve or augment human performance and help better optimise treatments for different musculoskeletal or neurological conditions (e.g. cerebral palsy).
