Senior Lecturer in Exercise Physiology and Sports Nutrition
I gained my BA (Hons) in Physiology from Trinity College Dublin and my PhD in Physiology from the University of Aberdeen.
My general research is in performance analysis and conditioning in intermittent exercise. I am also involved in international collaborations investigating pacing strategies in elite sport, in addition to publishing work in the field of physical activity and sport and exercise nutrition.
I am the Module Leader for Performance Analysis, Nutrition for Sport and Exercise and Intervention Strategies. I also teach about the physiology of training, cardiovascular physiology and research methods at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
