Biography

Dr Kylie A Steel is a senior lecturer in skill acquisition in the School of Science and Health, in addition to being a member of the MARCS Institute for Brain, Behaviour and Development at Western Sydney University.

Kylie’s research focuses primarily on visual biological motion perception in movement settings, with an emphasis on the trainability of perceptual skills concerned with the recognition of characteristics conveyed by movement.  

Kylie also conducts research in the areas of creativity in movement, observational learning in movement settings (sport and rehabilitation), talent-identification in sport and visual perception.
