I’m a PhD candidate in Cellular and Molecular Exercise Physiology at Liverpool John Moores University. My area of interest is the mechanisms by which vitamin D augment mitochondrial capacity and health. My academic background consists of an undergraduate degree in Sport and Exercise Science and a masters degree in Nutrition. Additionally, I have postgraduate qualifications in teaching at higher education institutions. I currently hold a position as a teaching support officer at LJMU where I assist with a wide range of modules including research skills, environmental physiology and skeletal muscle metabolism.
Outside of academia I have worked alongside combat athletes providing nutritional guidance to Brazilian jujitsu and mixed martial art fighters, assisting in safe and effective weight management interventions alongside fuelling strategies for performance. I have also worked extensively within the general population in the application of long-term dietary strategies for effective weight management.
