PEP PhD and MPhil Scholarships
What we are trying to find out: A women’s body undergoes unique progressive changes in shape and size throughout pregnancy and during the post-natal period. Although it is generally accepted that the physical changes experienced throughout this time affect the way women walk, balance, exercise, and carry out daily tasks, we currently have limited insight into how these relationships evolve across time, and how they differ between women. By monitoring physical and functional changes of women throughout pregnancy and post-natal, we can develop foundational knowledge of the pregnancy journey which will inform health-related practices for the pregnant woman. Who we are wanting to involve: 10 pregnant women for the test re-test PEP Reliability Study, and 200 pregnant women for the longitudinal PEP Morphology Study and longitudinal PEP Gait Study. There will be 2 x PhD and 1 MPhil student scholarships to work with the research team on this programme of research. The supervisors for each of the intended theses are indicated: 1.         PEP RELIABILITY. What is the reliability for 3D body scanning and gait measures for pregnant women?
