Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Science, University of Essex

My background is in Sport & Exercise Sciences, where I completed my Sports Science BSc (2012 - 2015) and Sport & Exercise Science MSc (2015 - 2016) at Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) in Cambridge.

Following this, I worked at Addenbrookes hospital’s Institute of Metabolic Science (IMS), in Epidemiology for the University of Cambridge (UoC) (2016 - 2018). In this role I supported the completion of large scale research projects for the Medical Research Council (MRC) and the University of Cambridge.

I left the MRC Epidemiology Unit to pursue a doctorate, where I was awarded the Vice Chancellor Scholarship fund. During this time, I achieved the Higher Education Academy (HEA) Associate Fellows and became an Associate Lecturer in Exercise Physiology and Nutrition for the School of Psychology and Sports Science, at Anglia Ruskin University.
After successfully completed and being awarded my Ph.D in Exercise Physiology and Genetics (2018 - 2021), I am now a Lecturer at the University of Essex (UoE) in Sports and Exercise Science for School of Sport, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences (SRES).
