On July 4th 2013 Jenny White successfully defended her thesis and was awarded a doctorate of philosophy subject to minor corrections. Jenny's PhD thesis was entitled 'Breast support implications for female recreational athletes'. Her research makes a contributes to the existing breast motion literature, provides useful information for bra designers and for larger-breasted female recreational athletes taking part in sport.


Jenny White also presented at the International Society of Biomechanics in Sport Conference in Taipei, Taiwan last week. Jenny presented one of her PhD studies to a large audience of biomechanists from across the world. The presentation received good feedback from the audience and was a good forum to promote the applied research on breast biomechanics that we undertake at the University of Portsmouth.
