Biography

Cloe completed her doctorate in Exercise and Sports Science at the University of Sydney in 2016. Cloe’s main research areas stem from her industry experience having implemented sports science processes within rugby league and working as a Research and Development Sports Scientist for a microtechnology provider. Cloe’s research focuses on improving team sport performance and reducing injury risk through novel applications of microtechnology to examine positional group differences; as well as to quantify training and match loads, collision forces and energetic demands.
