I am a committed, experienced Exercise Physiologist with extensive higher education teaching and educational leadership experience since 1993 in Australia and the UK. I have a strong record of quality, international high impact publications in a range of exercise physiology related areas. I completed my PhD in 2001 (USyd) and after completing a postdoctoral position at MMU on ‘Better Ageing’, my research focused on exercise in rheumatoid arthritis and in people with dementia at Bangor University, where I was also the Deputy Head of School for Innovation and Engagement. I arrived at UNSW in 2014 and was soon appointed to Head the Exercise Physiology Department a position that I held until 2020.
