Katherine is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences, Loughborough University. Her research seeks to identify potential preventive strategies for osteoporotic fracture by examining the influence of exercise and other lifestyle factors on bone health, fall risk and physical function. She has led a number of major randomised, controlled exercise intervention trials in young and older adults, including the ProAct65+ bone study which demonstrated that an intervention that met UK physical activity guidelines did not benefit bone density in older people, and the “Hiphop” study, which demonstrated that brief high-impact exercises could increase hip bone density in older men. She contributed to the Royal Osteoporosis Society (ROS) Consensus Statement on Physical Activity and Exercise for Osteoporosis.
