About me

About me

I am a Professor of Exercise Physiology, and group lead for the Physiology, Exercise and Nutrition Research Group at the University of Stirling. My education consists of a BSc(Hons) in Physiology and Sport Science from University of Glasgow (1990), an MSc in Exercise Physiology from University of New Brunswick, CANADA (1992), and a PhD in Nutrition and Metabolism from University of Aberdeen (1996). I joined Stirling in 1999 following a period as a post-doc at Strathclyde University. My remit on joining Stirling was to establish a new BSc programme in Sport and Exercise Science and to develop an associated research programme. I continue to play a key role in monitoring and developing our teaching and research programmes to ensure they meet the needs of a wide range of postgraduate destinations, employers, and external funders. My research focuses on human nutrition and exercise metabolism, and on fluid and electrolyte balance. Current projects include: exploring carbohydrate feeding requirements during endurance exercise; understanding the role of carnitine in substrate metabolism; investigating the impact of fish oil feeding on skeletal muscle metabolism and function; and exploring the regulation of fluid and electrolyte balance in young and older adults. My research uses a range of techniques to assess whole body physiological responses and more recently has included a focus on tissue and cell culture methodologies.

I have authored over 80 original peer-reviewed research articles, review articles, and book chapters. I am a Fellow of The Physiological Society (London), a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, a Board Member of the Sport and Exercise Nutrition register (an organization leading the professional registration of sport and exercise nutritionists / dietitians in the UK), and an Advisory Board Member for Nutrition and Biochemistry with the Journal of Sports Sciences. I also provide advice to nutritionists, dietitians and coaches working in track and field athletics, cycling, and alpine and cross-country skiing.

Research (22)

Nutrition and metabolism (factors regulating carbohydrate and fat metabolism in skeletal muscle); Understanding fluid and electrolyte balance throughout life (factors influencing maintenance of hydration status, and developing interventions for different population groups); Metabolic adaptations to exercise (interventions to alter carbohydrate and/or fat metabolism).
