Lecturer in Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences (Biomechanics)

Heinz Wolff 210


Dr Liam O'Reilly joined Brunel University London in 2021 as a lecturer in Biomechanics. He completed his PhD at the University of Portsmouth with a programme of research which investigated interference between cognitive tasks and vision during walking. Liam's research interests include active travel and barriers to the uptake of walking. In particular, Liam is interested in the effect of urban environments on pedestrian performance, safety, and wellbeing.

In addition to leading and teaching on a range of biomechanics modules, he has previously taught on a range of modules relating to health and exercise prescription, and delivered and assessed industry qualifications in fitness and personal training.
