It's a wrap! Looking back at my summer research attachment

I undertook a summer research attachment at the UCL's Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health under the supervision of Dr Joanna Blodgett. My research project was a pilot study about menstrual cycle and biomechanics in female football players utilising cloud-based, AI-trained computation technology.

In the past summer break, I am grateful to have the opportunity to undergo a research attachment at UCL under the supervision of Dr Jo Blodgett (Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health (ISEH)) and Dr Au Yeung Shiu Lun Ryan (School of Public Health, The University of Hong Kong).

My research project was a pilot study about menstrual cycle and biomechanics in female football players, aiming at exploring any differences in biomechanics movement across different phases of a cycle. We successfully piloted the use of OpenCap (opencap.ai), a recently developed open-source and cloud-based platform that computes movement dyanamics and kinematics at a fieldwork training setting with a local football team for the study. The hands-on experience gained from my six-week attachment in with fieldwork data collection and the full range of other research tasks (like ethics approval, questionnaire design and statistical analysis) was indeed a very comprehensive and fruitful introduction to the world of academia.

Besides the guidance of my host and home supervisors, Dr Blodgett and Dr Au Yeung, I must also take this opportunity to thank all researchers, clinicians and the team (both in and out of ISEH), especially John Joseph Mitchell, Jack Quach, Katherine Mercer, Catherine Martins and Jeffrey A. Turner for their assistance and support towards my research project and making my summer visit to London much more fruitful. I am looking forward to sharing more once we have the next stage of results and when the poster sessions will be held in the coming months.
