Dr Carina Price
Carina Price is a sport scientist by background and a researcher in the theme of foot and ankle. She completed her PhD via publication focusing on footwear biomechanics principles in retail footwear and has worked on a variety of footwear biomechanics projects utilising plantar pressure systems, scanners, ultrasound, 3D motion analysis and electromyography. Currently she splits her time between collaborative footwear projects with industry partners (Clarks and Wearer-Tech) and a 5 year collaborative research programme investigating children’s foot health, specifically the changes in foot structure and function that occur during the development of independent walking. Carina has taken on several roles within the department including being a member of the Research Ethics Committee and chairing the Early Career Research Group. Currently she is the higher education lead for the University for the Arthritis Research UK Internship programme. She regularly presents at international conferences relating to the foot and footwear.
Carina supervises research by PhD at Salford and at other institutions.
