Personal profile


I am a senior lecturer in Sport, Exercise, and Nutrition Science. I completed my PhD at Liverpool John Moores University 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 particularly passionate about nutrition to improve sporting performance/recovery, and nutritional interventions to improve markers of health.

Research Expertise and Interests

In the quest to achieve optimal health, nutrition plays an essential role. Whilst ensuring an adequate intake of energy, macro- and micro-nutrients provides the basic staples of a balanced diet, more and more interest is being shown in nutritional supplements (i.e. fruit extracts) which may be able to focus on several individual features of health. We are interested in investigating the potential affects of such nutritional aids and their impact on several aspects of health, such as cardiovascular and cognitive performance, and their use along side exercise based interventions.
