I am a part time Principal Lecturer and leader of the Physiology Division. I am accredited by BASES for physiology research. After gaining my PhD in physiology at the University of Sheffield I worked as a research fellow for six years at the Universities of Surrey and Portsmouth before becoming a lecturer in 2001. My main research interests are in human and applied physiology including thermal physiology and occupational physiology.
My research interests are fairly broad in the area of human and applied physiology. My research in thermal physiology has ranged from the responses to extreme heat, to survival in cold water. In addition, I have also conducted studies on the energy expenditure of playing video games and the IL6 response to exercise. I am currently undertaking studies in non-freezing cold injury.
