I am currently enrolled in PhD research investigating the impact of body armour and load carriage on respiratory function and exercise.

I am also a human performance physiologist working at Dstl since July 2002.  My primary responsibilities involve undertaking research to improve the physical performance of Armed Forces Personnel. 

I co-chair NATO Human Factors and Medicine (HFM) Research Task Group (RTG) 238, Reducing the dismounted soldier’s burden.  I am also a member of the Dstl scientific advisory committee to the MoD research ethics committee (MoDREC).
