About

I am currently supporting teaching across subject areas of Chiropractic and Sport & Exercise Science within the School of Health Sport and Professional Practice, with my predominant role in Clinical Physiology teaching and research for Chiropractic students. I was previously appointed Associate Head in July 2013 to July 2016, following the formation of the new Faculty and School as constituent areas of USW. Prior to this I was Divisional Head for Sport Health & Exercise Science at the University of Glamorgan. My teaching and research areas are in Clinical/Exercise Physiology & Biochemistry. I joined the University of Glamorgan in September 2009 moving from Swansea Met University where I was lecturer in Exercise Physiology. I graduated from the University of Glamorgan in 2001, obtained a PGCE in Secondary Education in 2004 (Cardiff Met) and completed my PhD in 2008 with Glamorgan. I am a member of the British Association of Sport and Exercise Science, The Physiological Society, American College of Sports Medicine, American Physiological Society, American Heart Association and am an advisory board member to the Wales Virtual Institute of Health & Exercise Science.
I am currently a member of both USW Science & Health Research Institute and the Cardiovascular Metabolism Group, Welsh Heart Research Institute.
