Personal profile


Sharon Czerniec is a physiotherapist and lymphoedema therapist with a clinical and research focus on lymphoedema and post-cancer rehabilitation. She completed a PhD on the assessment of breast cancer-related arm lymphoedema through the University of Sydney with the support of a National Breast Cancer Foundation Doctoral Scholarship.

Sharon has worked clinically in cancer care at various public and private health care facilities including  Westmead Hospital, Mt Wilga Hospital, the Sydney Melanoma Unit (now Melanoma Institute Australia) and the Central Coast Cancer Centre, where she assisted in developing and conducting exercise classes for people undergoing cancer treatment.

In her academic roles Sharon has been involved in teaching and research at the University of Sydney and the Australian Catholic University. She has published widely on lymphoedema, with a focus on assessment using bioimpedance spectroscopy, but also on tissue changes associated with progression and the impacts of lymphoedema on function and quality of life.

Sharon joined the Macquarie University ALERT team as Research Fellow in April 2018.
