Profile summary

I graduated from the University of Sunderland in 2012 with a first class honours degree where I investigated the psychological and physiological influences dietary nitrate has on an athlete’s running economy. During 2013, I pursued an MSc in Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Sunderland where my research focused upon the ergogenic impact of caffeine over 1000m running time-trials. This research was awarded with BASES masters dissertation of the year. In the autumn of 2013, I was given the opportunity to pursue a PhD in anti-doping at Canterbury Christ Church University with an emphasis on athletes’ beliefs regarding sport supplements.

In addition, I work as a part time university tutor, contributing to the teaching of sport and exercise psychology and research methods modules at undergraduate level.

Away from my academic work I am an international level middle-distance runner, where I recently competed for Great Britain at the European Indoor Championships in Prague.
