Personal profile


I am a part time Principal Lecturer in Human and Applied Physiology in the School of Sport, Health and Exercise Science. 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. I teach on various undergraduate and postgraduate physiology modules as well as supervising research projects. I was lead for the School's Athena Swan submissions for 6 years and a member of the Science Faculty Research Ethics Committee for 16 years. My main research interest is human physiology in extreme environments with a particular focus on the cold.

Research Interests

My research interests are in human and applied physiology in extreme environments. Although I have conducted research on the effects of heat and altitude on performance, my main focus has been on the effects of cold including survival in cold water and the pathophysiology of non-freezing cold injury.
