Research interests

I am a Lecturer and Principal Investigator in the School of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Leeds. My research group comprises of a multidisciplinary team of exercise physiologists, respiratory physicians, and healthcare scientists, who collaborate to improve the lives of people in whom respiratory limitation and exercise intolerance is a major symptom. The specific aims of the lab are two-fold; first, to optimise the diagnosis and management of exercise-related breathing disorders in both athletic and patient cohorts (areas of interest include exercise-induced asthma, laryngeal dysfunction and breathing pattern disorder), and second, to evaluate the therapeutic utility of exercise training and physical activity promotion interventions in people living with chronic lung disease.
