Research

Sue joined the Injury Prevention Research Unit in 2005, initially to work on a project with Peter Davidson investigating the properties of playground surfaces and the biomechanics of arm impact injuries in children. Prior to this, she had worked in physiological and biochemical research areas for several years after completing a Master of Science in physiology.

Most of Sue's research is now with the Prospective Outcomes of Injury Study (led by Sarah Derrett), a large longitudinal cohort study of injured people in New Zealand which aims to identify individual and injury characteristics which assist or slow recovery.
