About me

About me

I graduated from the University of Exeter with a BSc in Sports and Exercise Science in 2016 before going on to study a masters in Exercise and Sports Science in 2017 at the University of Birmingham. After my masters, I began my PhD in exercise physiology and epigenetics at the University of Stirling in 2017. My thesis aims to investigate the role of hormonal changes across the menstrual cycle on physical activity and metabolic control. Specifically, I am interested in the role of a particular epigenetic mechanism, microRNAs, in regulating changes in metabolic control across the menstrual cycle at rest and in response to exercise.


My research interests include epigenetics and exercise physiology. Specifically I am interested in mechanisms underpinning physiological differences across the menstrual cycle and between biological sexes.
