I am a lecturer in Sport & Exercise Physiology and lead the
Level C Undergraduate Sport & Exercise Science provision. My
main areas of teaching include physical activity and health, chronic disease
management, exercise prescription and exercise training.
I graduated with upper second class honours
(2:1) from Liverpool John Moores University in Exercise Physiology and went
onto complete a PhD in “The effects of exercise training on cardiac and
peripheral function in men and women” under the supervision of Professor Tim
Cable. The research was funded by the
British Heart Foundation to examine the issues regarding cardiovascular health
and exercise, which won prizes at both British Association of Sport &
Exercise Sciences Conference and European Conference in Sport Sciences.
I have taught at
Liverpool Hope University since 2008, with particular research interest on the
effects of exercise training in relation to health and disease. This includes both cardiac and vascular
adaptations in athletic and diseased populations. I have previously collaborated with the
British Heart Foundation, Blackburn & Darwen PCT, Crewe FC, Everton FC and
Mersey Roads 24, and have strong links with Liverpool Football Club Community
Department. Current research is focused
on the effects of high intensity training programs on cardiac and peripheral
indices with particular emphasis on gender-specific changes.
