Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on diversity in physiology. Specifically, how age, sex, and hormonal status interact to determine physiological function in health and disease. I aim to detail the interaction between systems and quantify acute responses and chronic adaptation to interventions, such as exercise.

To perform this research, I combine techniques such as transcranial magnetic stimulation, high-density electromyography, near-infrared spectroscopy, and pulmonary gas exchange to identify aetiologies of physiological alterations and adaptations.

Biography

I am currently a Lecturer in Exercise Physiology having completed my Ph.D at Northumbria University in 2020. Before moving to Northumbria, I completed my undergraduate and masters degrees at the University of Brighton.

I currently teach on the BSc Applied Sport and Exercise Science and MSc Strength and Conditioning degrees on modules such as Fundamentals of Human Physiology, Physiology of Strength and Conditioning, and Contemporary Issues in Strength and Conditioning.

I am an active researcher in the Faculty of Healthy and Life Sciences, including supervision of Ph.D students in the fields of Exercise Physiology and Neurophysiology.
