Research interests

My research interests fall broadly under the banner of enhancing sport performance. Currently most of my work is focused upon middle and long-distance running, with projects looking at aerobic interval training. One PhD student (Sherveen Riazati) is looking at how fatigue effects running gait, in particular the role of muscle strength. A second PhD student (Arran Parmar) is investigating the acute responses to, and recovery from, aerobic interval training. In addition to this I'm interested in the relative age effect and quantifying training loads.



Research Student Supervision Interests

The areas that I'm interested in supervising include: the effect of fatigue on running gait, acute and chronic interventions to reduce the effects of fatigue on running gait; measuring training load in interval training.
