I graduated from the University of Chester in 2015 with a first class honours degree in Sport and Exercise Science. Following on from this I continued my studies in Chester and undertook an MSc in Sports Physiology. My research thus far has been influenced by a strong interest in both physiology and psychology and more specifically their co-influence on exercise performance.


  • Undergraduate dissertation – Examining the physiological and psychological effects of music and video on exercise performance
  • Masters research project – Physiological and perceptual responses to cycling exercise in a fully immersive virtual environment
  • PhD Research – Human cognition in extreme environments
