Centre of Excellence Cricket DPhil student
Betsy is a DPhil student based at the Botnar Research Centre, supervised by Professor Nigel Arden and Dr Julia Newton.
Betsy’s DPhil project is conducted in collaboration with the England and Wales Cricket Board and the Professional Cricketers’ Association as part of the Arthritis Research UK Centre for Sport, Exercise and Osteoarthritis. Her project includes an epidemiological study to determine the prevalence of osteoarthritis in retired professional cricketers, as well as a study of current elite cricketers to better understand the effects of elite fast bowling on knee health using MRI and motion capture analysis.
Prior to her DPhil, Betsy completed her BS in Biomedical Engineering at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, USA, with a focus in biomechanics and a secondary major in International Studies. She then went on to complete her MSc in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Oxford as a Whitaker International Fellow.
