I joined the Division of Sport and Exercise Sciences as a lecturer in March 2016. Prior to this, I worked with the Dundee Academy of Sport and the Division of Sport and Exercise Sciences as a teaching fellow.
I gained my undergraduate degree in Physiology and Sports Science, BSc (Hons), from the University of Glasgow and my PhD in Exercise Physiology from the University of the West of Scotland where I was also an associate lecturer for three years (2009-2012).
I am currently module leader for:
