He is active in the supervision of higher degree students and lecturing in both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. He is Associate Editor for BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders (IF: 1.739), Editorial Board Member for the Journal of Foot & Ankle Research (IF: 1.405) and an expert reviewer for Foot & Ankle Research Review.  Matthew is an experienced academic leader having held various senior academic leadership positions.  Matthew is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Research and Development Society of Australasia.

Teaching Areas:

PODY802 - Advanced Therapies for the Foot and Ankle (Paper Leader)

HEAL986 - Research in Practice (Paper Leader)

HEAL997 - Practice Project (Paper Leader)

RHAB810 - Clinical Gait Analysis (Lecturer)

PODY703 - Musculoskeletal Podiatry (Lecturer)

Research Areas:

Musculoskeletal conditions of the foot and ankle

Gait analysis

Ultrasound imaging of the foot and ankle

Research Summary:

Matthews PhD investigated the structure of the Achilles tendon using ultrasound and examined gait using three-dimensional gait analysis in people with chronic gout.   His research focus is on musculoskeletal conditions of the lower limb and the Achilles tendon. He is currently supervising numerous projects investigating function in the lower limb using ultrasound imaging and footwear. Matthew also has an interest in academic leadership and in 2018 completed a Master of Educational Leadership degree with a thesis titled “The complexity of change for a Head of Department in New Zealand Universities”.

Current Research Projects:

  1. Strain properties of the Achilles tendon using ultrasound imaging
  2. The role of muscle strengthening in the management of juvenile hallux valgus
  3. Footwear characteristics in school-aged netballers
  4. The complexity of change for a Head of Department in New Zealand Universities (Masters thesis)
