Personal profile

Personal profile

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:

  • Key concepts in sport and exercise physiology (SPS203)
  • Physiology for sport and exercise (SPS102)

Research interests

Mu current research focus is investigating the effect of exercise during pregnancy and in the postpartum period.

My recently completed research projects include:

  • Sleep patterns in youth swimmers and the impact of the time of day on swimming performance.
  • The impact of dry land strength and conditioning on swimming performance in young highly trained swimmers.
