A formal qualification means I can build a better future for my whanau, it also means I can help those less fortunate. Just because you have been raised in a negative environment doesnt mean you can't change your life for the better of your whanau. Live life to the fullest!
My primary research area continues work on the identification and description of the biomechanical factors involved in back injuries and legal bowling actions in cricket fast bowlers. The former provides guidelines for safe coaching techniques, and the latter work has contributed to the national and international developments of regulations around the legality and assessment of bowling actions. However, since 2006 my work has begun to focus on primary health care issues related to nursing. This has resulted in a number of papers which recommend changes to current nursing/health care practice.
