I am module leader for the Physiotherapy undergraduate modules Inspiring Health & Exercise (PHY111) and Enhancing Physical Activity (PHY323) and I act as Physiotherapy lead for the second and third year Project Studies (SOHP501 & SOHP601) research modules. I contribute to teaching and research supervision on a range of undergraduate and post-graduate modules within the School of Health Professions.
My research has examined the effects of exercise on health and human performance. Areas of investigation have included musculoskeletal rehabilitation (platelet rich plasma in Achilles tendon rupture, prognostic factors for ankle sprain recovery), physiology and performance in environmental heat, and neuromuscular function after exercise-induced muscle damage.
