Biography

After graduating with an undergraduate degree in Physiology & Sport Science and a Masters in Strength & Conditioning, I pursued a career in performance sport. I have worked with a variety of organisations, athletes and teams, at a range of levels and ages in the UK. Along my journey I have also utilised my skills in different areas of the industry such as Health & Fitness, whereby I have created, developed and delivered education for fitness professionals.

My role at the university combines the skills I have gained over the years enabling me to expand my knowledge in the field and develop my experience through research. I am able to continue my work with athletes and also aid in the development of future coaches into the industry, things that I am very passionate about.
