Dr Jayishni Maharaj graduated with a Bachelor of Podiatry and first class Honours from the Queensland University of Technology in 2010, and completed her PhD in biomechanics and motor control at the University of QLD in 2018. Practicing as a podiatrist for over 8 years Jayishni has developed a passion for understanding the biomechanics of the lower limb and foot, treating and managing musculoskeletal overuse injuries in adults and kids as well as designing foot orthoses.
Jayishni also works as a Research Fellow in the Biomechanics lab at The University of Queensland. Here, Jayishni integrates biomechanics and computer sciences to understand the function of muscles in our feet and legs and factors that predispose them to injury during walking and running. Jayishni’s research also explores how footwear and orthotics prevent injury. Jayishni has presented at national and international conferences and published in biomechanics and sports medicine journals.
