I am Dr Praveen Kumar currently working as a Senior Lecturer in Physiotherapy at the University of West of England that was awarded a Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in 2018, the Government's higher education ranking system. I teach on UG physiotherapy, Sports Rehabilitation and MSc Rehabilitation programmes.
My post-doctoral research includes development of assessment and treatment of shoulder pain and subluxation in people with stroke. I have several publications in peer-reviewed international journals some of which are in high impact journals. I have also presented my research at both national and international conferences and received awards for best abstract.
My early-stage but growing research expertise and portfolio has seen me contribute to the 4th and 5th National Stroke Guidelines. In addition, I regularly review articles for international journals and grant applications.
I am currently Editor for Synapse, official journal and ‘Headlines’ newsletter for ACPIN respectively.
