About me

I graduated with BSc in Sport & Exercise Science from University of Stirling in 2012, before completing my PhD in 2016. I completed 2 years post-doctoral research with SportScotland: Scottish Institute of Sport, where my work helped GB athletes prepare for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. In 2018 I joined the Faculty of Health Sciences and Sport as a Lecturer. In this role I currently contribute to the delivery of a number of modules on Sports Studies and Sport and Exercise Science undergraduate programmes, and supervise MPhil and PhD research postgraduates.

My research interests reach from elite athlete training, recovery and preparation for competition, to maintenance of muscle mass and function as contributors to healthy ageing. This work has supported Scottish athletes towards medal success at Commonwealth, European, World, and Olympic level. My teaching focuses mostly on applied exercise science and muscular/ neuromuscular systems.
