Personal profile


I am a senior lecture in Sport, Exericse, and Nutrition Science. I completed my PhD at Liverpool John Moores Univeristy where I investigated the nutritional intake and habits of elite youth soccer players. Over the past few years I have been able to present my research at international conferences such as ISENC and ECSS. My research interests are quite broad, but I am particualry passionate about nutrition to improve sporting performance/recovery, and nutritional interventions to improve markers of health.
