Dr Alison Wills
Alison completed an undergraduate degree in BSc (Hons) Veterinary Science at the Royal Veterinary College in 2009 and then continued at the RVC to study for a PhD in canine biomechanics within the Structure and Motion Laboratory. Alison joined Hartpury University in 2013 and is now a Senior Lecturer in addition to Programme Manager for the BSc (Hons) Animal/Canine Training and Performance degree programme. Alison’s current research interests focus around applied canine biomechanics with recent research examining the benefits of hydrotherapy for dogs with elbow dysplasia and how dogs move on a water treadmill. Going forward, Alison intends to continue to provide an evidence base for the use of canine hydrotherapy and further our understanding of canine aquatic locomotion.
