Jay has practiced as an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) at the HFRC Rehabilitation Clinic since 2002.
After graduating at the University of Western Australia (UWA) with Honours in 2002, he embarked on his PhD whilst working at HFRC. His PhD was focused in knee cartilage repair, biomechanics and exercise rehabilitation also at UWA, for which he was awarded the Exercise and Sport Science Australia (ESSA) Medal in 2008.
In 2010 he was awarded the ESSA Exercise Physiologist of the Year and, now also a HFRC Director, combines his clinical work with his passion for research, also the Director of Research at the Perth Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Research Institute and a Director of the Orthopaedic Research Foundation of Western Australia.
While he continues to teach at UWA at the School of Human Sciences (Exercise and Sport Science), his research interests span a range of musculoskeletal and orthopaedic areas, primarily hip, knee and shoulder surgery. With his clinical and academic output in mind, he was awarded Honorary Fellowship with the Australian Orthopaedic Association in 2018 and awarded Fellowship with ESSA in 2019.
The numerous research projects run through HFRC combined with his clinical work keep him busy, in combination with a family that includes 4 (and no more) kids.
