I have been working as PDRA at Cardiff University in the Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Research Facility (MSKBRF) since January 2020 supporting project funded by EPSRC, Verses Arthritis and the Welsh Government. This includes research project that investigate gait analysis for osteoarthritis (OA) patients, OA dataset integration and analysis, nociception measurement and wearable sensor development and integration. I also work as a Research Coordinator for the OATech+ Network , a research network that aims to drive forward technology development in OA research. This is a UK wide network collaborating with several leading institutions.
Project Title: Introduction to R scripts and MatLab for biomechanics dataset integration and analysis.
Project Description: Dr Rebecca Hamilton has been mentored by Dr Heather Turner, a Research Software Engineer Fellow at the University if Warwick. Heather is a statistical consultant with experience in supporting research in the life and social sciences with particular expertise in areas of statistical modelling and programming using open source software R. Heather has created a list of resources for Rebecca to work through various R packages contacts made for resources relating to MatLab also, with regular catch up meetings to address all tutorial queries. They aim to start working on the biomechanics datasets before the software camp begins.
