Personal profile


Dr Tim Doyle is a biomechanics and physical performance researcher. He also holds an adjunct Associate Professor with the Centre for Musculoskeletal Research at Griffith University. He was previously employed as a human performance scientist by the Australian Department of Defence, with published research covering military performance, injury screening, and employment standards. He is an accredited Professional Strength and Conditioning Coach with the Australian Strength and Conditioning Association, a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and an accredited level 2 Sport Scientist, and Exercise Scientist with Exercise and Sport Science Australia. His professional and academic collaborations extend both locally and internationally, including professional sports (Rugby Union and League), and Military and Law Enforcement agencies. He completed his PhD in Biomechanics through Edith Cowan University and before this he completed his Master of Science at Ball State University, and his undergraduate studies at the University of Queensland, Bachelor of Science (Human Movement Studies) - Honours. In addition grant funding he has been awarded an Endeavour Executive Fellowship which provided the opportunity to spend time at The Mayo Clinic and Stanford University. His research involves neuromuscular biomechanics, injury prevention, and physical preparation in athletes and tactical populations.
