Now working as a research fellow for the Western Bulldogs, Alice Sweeting’s PhD research is helping to give the Australian netball team the edge.
During my undergraduate degree, I did my cadetship with the Western Bulldogs, and a work placement with Netball Australia.
I undertook my PhD research in collaboration with the Australian Institute of Sport and Netball Australia. It used a new tracking system to capture the movement of elite athletes during matches, giving our Australian netball team the edge.
I am now a research fellow in sport science with the Western Bulldogs and the Institute for Health and Sport. My role involves supporting the senior sport scientist and high performance staff at the Western Bulldogs in research and the daily training environment."
