I teach applied sport physiology on the sport and exercise science related degrees. Current research interests include the physiology of soccer and hand-cooling as an ergogenic aid.
I am responsible for college leadership of the development and implementation of strategies relating to learning, teaching and assessment in order to enhance and promote the student learning experience.
I am a senior fellow of the Higher Education Academy and one of the first three staff at Sheffield Hallam University to be awarded the status.
