My academic background includes completing an MSc in Sports Performance at the University of Portsmouth, and prior to that a BSc in Sport Science at the University of Brighton. I currently work as a Lead Technician in the Extreme Environments Laboratory having joined the department in 2012. Away from work I am keen runner and have completed over 25 marathons across the world. 

My role is to provide technical support for research projects, teaching and commercial activities within and ensure the smooth day to day running of the Extreme Environments Laboratory. I provide support to a variety of lab users ranging from students, PhD researchers, and academics to TV documentary makers and athletes. My role includes organising and setting up the laboratory, calibration and maintenance of equipment, assisting with experimental procedures, and providing first-aid to projects in environmental extremes. 


My job gives me the opportunity to be involved and have an interest in all aspects of environmental physiology. I have a particular interest in exercise performance/pacing in hot conditions and have published my MSc and BSc research on this topic area.
