My name is Julian Werth. I moved from Germany to London in the beginning of 2018. Beforehand I studied my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Sports Sciences and Movement Gerontology. I have been studying a PhD at the School of Applied Sciences since 2019 focusing on the biomechanics of human locomotion, motor learning and fall-resisting skill generalisation. Besides I have been working since the end of 2019 as a PT for a medical gym in central London. Besides I assist in teaching at the School of Applied Sciences (Measurement in Sports and Exercise Science; Excel and Statistics; Anatomy and Physiology).

My main research focuses on the generalisation of trip-resisting skills. Therefore I have been performed several studies conducting on adults over a wide range of age within the last couple of years. Since falls due to stability disturbances remain a major health issue I aim to investigate in targeted training paradigms and generalisation of effective stability control mechanisms.
