About me

I joined the University of Stirling as a Lecturer in 2012. I grew up in Glasgow and completed my undergraduate degree in Physiology at the University of Glasgow. I then took the long way from Glasgow to Stirling by spending 6.5 years in the USA studying for my PhD in Exercise Physiology & Muscle Biology from Ohio University and then a post-doctoral fellowship at Tufts University, Boston. From there I spent 5 years in South Africa with a post-doctoral associate position at Stellenbosch University and then 2 years as a Lecturer at Stellenbosch. I returned to Scotland at the end of 2011 and began my lectureship in Stirling.

I am currently the Programme Director for the Sport and Exercise Science UG degree programme and I chair the Faculty Equality, Diversity & Inclusion / Athena SWAN committee.
