I completed BSc (Hons) Sport & Exercise Science and MSc in Sports Coaching Science degrees at the University of Worcester. During my time in Worcester I started teaching on various undergraduate modules as part of the MSc Studentship before moving to Abertay University to work as a Teaching Fellow in Sport and Exercise Science. In 2015 I joined Edinburgh Napier University as a Teaching Associate in Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences where I teach on a range of undergraduate modules including strength & conditioning, exercise training and sports coaching. More recently, I have become a University Tutor and continue to support undergraduate and postgraduate students.
With regards to professional qualifications, I am a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) with the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). I am also a British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) accredited Sport and Exercise Scientist (physiology support).
My main research interests are:
• High-intensity interval training and its optimisation for sports performance and health
• Testing and monitoring of sports performance
• Strength and conditioning
