I am an accredited exercise scientist whose work focuses broadly on the effects of resistance training. I have two streams of research, clinically I focus on the use of exercise following cancer and its treatments. Secondly I focus on maximising the effect of resistance training in healthy populations with a specific interest in sex-differences and female physiology. I am also currently working on exercise microbiome research. My research has been widely publiscised including being featured on the number one international sport brand 'Nike's website. In addition to research, I am very passionate about teaching and education in the exercise science field. I have studied at 4 and taught at 5 different Universities, giving me a breadth of knowledge with different teaching and learning styles.
