Overview

I am a Lecturer in Clinical Exercise Physiology and the Senior Tutor for the School of Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences. After completing my Ph.D. in Clinical Exercise Physiology at Bangor University in 2013, I completed my post-doctoral studies working as a Research Officer on the national UK PEDAL Trial (PrEscription of intra-Dialytic exercise to improve quAlity of Life in patients with chronic kidney disease) in collaboration with Kings College Hospital, London.

My research interests include interventions to enhance general health and wellbeing and specifically research investigating the beneficial effects of physical activity in older adults and people living with chronic conditions including rheumatoid arthritis and chronic kidney disease.

I am also very passionate about the promotion of exercise as part of routine care and have recently completed the MOVE project (http://move.bangor.ac.uk/).

I am a member of the Schools Physical Activity for Health and Wellbeing group and a member of the British Renal Society Rehabilitation Network.
