I am a lecturer within the Division of Human Sciences. I conduct lab-based experimental studies and community-based health intervention research. I teach across Sports and Exercise Science and Biosciences degrees.

I support the notion that Exercise is Medicine and my research centres primarily on the physiological effects of physical activity. My main research interests include resistance training for strength and conditioning, physical activity as a countermeasure to ageing, and enhancing muscle function and exercise performance through using novel interventions.

I am currently working on 2 research projects: The impact of exercise on older adults' health and wellbeing; The effect of a novel nutritional supplement on endurance cycling performance (as part of the London Agri Food Innovation Clinic). I have recently completed a Sport England funded project for reducing inactivity in young females - 'This Girl Can with Lambeth', which engaged 5000 females with sport and physical activity and produced insight into increasing activity levels within this population.

In 2019 I worked with the BBC on the documentary 'Truth about cosmetic treatments' to perform a small study into the effects of infrared exercise on fat loss.

I work with community organisations, and have consulted on research and data collection for the Charity SilverFit, which provides opportunities for older adults to physically active.
