Harrison BSc(Hons), BExPhys is an NHMRC Postgraduate Scholar completing his PhD at Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA) and the School of Health Sciences at University of New South Wales (UNSW). His PhD focusses on improving the evidence-based management of musculoskeletal conditions. He also interested in improving research reporting and quality to help improve trust in science. Harrison is a member of NeuRAs Research Quality Committee.

Harrison's current research focusses on understanding whether, and for whom interventions for musculoskeletal conditions are safe and effective using big-data, which allows us to answer questions that cannot be answered using other sources like randomised trials. He is also interested in developing consumer-centred thresholds of clinical importance, the smallest worthwhile effect, to better interpret the effects of treatments.
