I joined Abertay University in 2014 from Liverpool Hope University, where I was a Post-Doctoral Teaching Fellow in Sport and Exercise Science. Previously, I held lecturing positions at University College Dublin and American College Dublin.
My academic qualifications include a BSc. (Hons.) in Sport, Coaching and Exercise (Manchester Metropolitan University); MSc. Exercise Physiology (Trinity College Dublin); PhD Sports Medicine (University College Dublin); PGDip Academic Practice (Liverpool Hope University). I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA).
My principal area of research is Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES). I am currently interested in the development of NMES protocols for use in a home-based setting for elderly populations in collaboration with University College Dublin.
My wider interests include muscle physiology and ageing, sports recovery and strength and conditioning. Other relevant qualifications include being a NSCA Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), and a NASM Level 3 Certified Personal Trainer.
