Amy Wright is a Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Biomechanics and joined the University of Winchester in 2015. Amy gained her BSc (Hons) in Sport and Exercise Science from University of Chester and followed this with an MSc in Biomechanics. Her PhD focusses upon stroke rehabilitation and investigates the effect of using lower-limb robotic-assisted technology, in a home-based environment, on biomechanical and functional outcomes in patients with stroke.

Amy in actively involved in the Department's Sport and Exercise Consultancy Unit and is the lead biomechanist for the Hampshire Institute of Sport with Hampshire County Council and EnergiseMe. She has also worked alongside elite athletes within British Athletics, Swim Wales, GB Archery, British Gymnastics and Para-rowing providing sport science support.

Amy has a Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy
