Senior Lecturer in Exercise Physiology

I am an Accredited Sport and Exercise Scientist through the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) and a Chartered Scientist with the Science Council. I have taught sport, exercise and clinical-related physiology in Higher Education since 1995, and I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

I am a Supervisor and Reviewer for BASES Supervised Experience. Previously I worked extensively with Exercise Referral and Cardiac Rehabilitation schemes, developing CPD educational training programmes for exercise instructors.

I specialise in sport, exercise and clinical physiology but also contribute to Research Methods taught provision at Level 5 and Level 7.

I am an experienced External Examiner and have acted as an External Advisor and Panel member for undergraduate and postgraduate programme validation events around the UK.

Research interests for potential research students

I welcome Doctoral students interested in environmental and occupational physiology, recovery, the female athlete or clinical exercise physiology.

Research

I have a keen interest in environmental physiology. My PhD research explored the impact of intermittent hypoxic pre-acclimation on cardiovascular autonomic modulations during ascent to very high altitude and involved a 17 day trek from Lukla to Mera Peak in the Himalayas, Nepal, with data collection at 2800m, 4300m and 5300m. More recently, I have supervised two high altitude postgraduate research projects involving physiological data collection during ascents on Mont Blanc and the Atlas Mountains.

I also have an interest in occupational physiology and I am currently seeking collaborations and funding for an innovative Workplace Health Initiative to encourage lifestyle behaviour changes to promote positive cardiovascular and mental health.

Combining my environmental and occupational health interests, I am seeking collaborations and funding to further explore cardiovascular health and risk in fire-fighters during, and after, fire-fighting activities.
