Personal profile

Biographical details

My academic career started with a BSc in Sport and Exercise Sciene with Psychology, which was completed in 2007, following which I have had numerous roles within the fitness (including personal training, coaching, article writing) and physiology (including exercise and cardiac) domains.

I furthered my interest in knowledge of physiology in extreme environments by pursuing a MSc in Space Physiology and Health at King's College London in 2011-2012, during which time I started research with the Gravity-Loading Countermeasure Skinsuit (GLCS); a garment which attempts to re-create a gravity-like load through the body to hopefully attenuate some of the physiological de-conditioning seen in astronauts and those that are subjected to immobilisation/disuse atrophy.

I now continue to research within the GLCS realm by means of a PhD, funded by the EPSRC, and in collaboration with the European Space Agency, where my main focus is investigating the GLCS's influence on human movement and exercise.

I also teach exercise classes externally and am a part time writer/consultant for an online fitness company.
