Personal profile

Research interests

Stewart’s main clinical and research interest is the paediatric foot and his work is pursuing advances with the understanding and clinical management of foot and ankle problems in children. Stewart has held a number of grants related to the paediatric foot and is currently co-leading a five year research programme (Great Foundations) which is looking to advance our understanding of the development of the paediatric foot. This work compliments his extensive clinical expertise. 

Stewart has been involved in work looking at the impact of running footwear on foot and lower limb biomechanics. He was also involved in a multi-centre study looking at the role of foot and ankle impairments as predictors of mobility and balance problems in stroke survivors.

Scholarly biography

Stewart is a Reader within the School of Health Sciences.  He was awarded his PhD from Glasgow Caledonian University and has a PgCert in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education.  Stewart is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a member of the College of Podiatry.  He is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.

Supervisory Interests

Stewart has an interest in the paediatric foot and his work is pursuing advances in the understanding and clinical management of foot and ankle problems in children.  He has experience of multi-methods research and is currently supervising two PhD students.  This current work is combining sophisticated motion capture and imaging technologies to advance understanding of foot development across childhood.  Past PhD candidates that have worked with Stewart have completed work in childhood obesity, footwear biomechanics, and foot and ankle impairments following stroke.
