Dr. Garrett Bullock is currently reading for a DPhil in Musculoskeletal Sciences as an Oxford Clarendon Scholar, funded by The Oxford University Press. His research focus is on developing prediction models to identify injury risk factors for overhead athletes, and the role of physical activity and sport on musculoskeletal health and quality of life. He is currently investigating the relationship between persistent joint pain, physical activity, and health related quality of life in cricketers, and the long-term health effects of playing baseball.

Garrett went on to play five years of professional baseball in the Houston Astros Organisation where he was a member of the 2010 New York Penn League Champions.
Following retirement, Garrett graduated from Duke University with a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree.
