Although her expertise crosses sports and exercise science, biomechanics and even clinical sports medicine and physiotherapy, she identifies only as a scientist. And this may be one reason she has been able to achieve a lot in her relatively short time since completing her PhD at the University Of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand. Her pragmatic approach to footwear science and research may also stem from her upbringing in rural Northwestern Montana, U.S.A.
Dr Ramsey has an enviable CV including a swag of publications, but her greatest passion is to explore the topic of footwear from a complex systems perspective and try to help bridge the gap between the athletes, footwear retailers, manufacturers, researchers, and governing bodies. And this, is EXACTLY what is needed in this space right now. I am sure you will enjoy this fascinating insight into how, or if athletic footwear can influence injury in runners.
