Himalaya Singh

 Himalaya Singh has a background in Information Technology and spatial Information Science. He commenced his PhD to apply these skills in the sports and physical activity setting. Having a passion for sports and a mind set for spatial thinking, his research focuses on using geospatial methods in the sport injury prevention context. Himalaya's investigation intend to apply novel applications of spatial epidemiological approaches to sports injury data, which will  offer significant benefits for injury surveillance, allocation of resources and development of effective prevention programs.  His aim is to provide evidence to policy makers that will lead to better informed decisions in injury prevention programs and policy development.
