As an exercise physiologist that has research interests in health, disease and sport performance, I deliver a range of Sport and Exercise Science modules. I have particular interests in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, new non-invasive assessments of vascular function, and gaining a better understanding of blood flow and oxygen changes in high level rock climbers.
