Research Fellow, The University of Queensland

Tom leads the Physiology and Ultrasound Laboratory in Science and Exercise (PULSE) within the School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences. As an exercise physiologist, his research focuses on understanding changes in cardiovascular control across the spectrum of healthy ageing, and investigating the direct effects of exercise on the vascular system, including at the brain. He also aims to understand the potential benefits of exercise training on cerebrovascular and cardiovascular health in women, and adults with chronic disease. This includes current exercise trials in post-menopausal women, and adults with mild cognitive impairment, hypertension, coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancers survivors.
