About Professor Sole's research

Gisela is a musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapist, becoming interested in research and teaching after working as a clinician in South Africa and Switzerland.

Her research advances knowledge about the influence of injuries and pain on the person, optimising rehabilitation, and enhancing the person's confidence to self-manage their health recovery. Studies range from laboratory-based studies exploring mechanisms underlying injury, and qualitative studies exploring patients' and clinicians' experiences of their injury and treatment respectively.

She leads the Otago Shoulder Health studies that were awarded Champion Project of Pain@Otago in 2021, collaborating with international and local researchers and clinicians. Her team recently co-designed a publicly-available website with people with shoulder pain and physiotherapists.

She co-leads a collaborative team developing a framework to support students with concussion for their return-to-learn in secondary schools. She was awarded the UK Council of Graduate Education research supervisor recognition in 2022. She is the Deputy Dean of the School of Physiotherapy and remains integrally involved in teaching of under- and postgraduate students.

This lecture will be followed with light refreshments, tea, coffee and juice.
