Dan continues publishes articles in this area which underpins his applied practice. His main focus is understanding how best to filter and analyse the multiple data sources we collect across sports performance to assist the understanding of the demands faced by athletes and their relationship to outcomes such as injury and changes in ‘fitness’.
