Australian Collaboration for Research into Injury in Sport and its Prevention (ACRISP)

Sheree Bekker

 Sheree Bekker is originally from South Africa, and joined ACRISP after responding to a call for PhD scholars on Twitter. Professor Caroline Finch explains: "Her story is a great example of how social networks enable researchers to connect worldwide, broadening impact and building the best teams. For regional universities, having a strong social media profile around research strengths, as ACRISP does, enables us to directly connect with the young people who are likely to develop into the research leaders of tomorrow and to recruit them to our research teams."  Sheree is researching the complexity of safety in sport.
