Research Interests

Gareth research is focused on the epidemiology of injury in rock climbing and the development of preventative injury strategies and evaluation of load. Recently Gareth has collaborated with Professor Volker Schöffl and Professor Mark Johnson in the development of a new diagnostic and therapeutic algorithm for climbing-related finger injuries.

Gareth has recently presented his latest research findings at the 4th Congress of the International Rock Climbing Research Association in Chamonix, France July 2018 and the British Mountaineering Council Injury Symposium in Birmingham in November.
