About Emily Cust

Dr Emily Cust completed her PhD in 2020 as part of the VU-Western Bulldogs partnership. Her research involved a multi-disciplinary approach to analysing AFLW skilled performances and subsequently proposes a concept of a semi-automated AF kick type classification system for skill monitoring in an applied environment.

Emily currently holds a position with VU as a research fellow embedded within the VU-Tennis Australia partnership. Her key research areas of interest include determining unique characteristics of athlete skilled performances and analysing technology data such as spatiotemporal tracking data and wearable inertial measurement units to report sporting performances.
