Personal profile

Key Research Interests

Publications - Google Scholar

Research Interests - My research seeks to to understand the contribution of non-thermal factors to cold-induced thermoregulation; understanding interactions between hypoxia and thermoregulatory autonomic responses. In situations of limited oxygen availability, whether through circulatory disorders or environmental exposure, the accompanying thermoregulatory tendency is that of hypothermia. Paradoxically, thermal homeostasis in humans should not be underestimated, as such deep-body temperature is tightly regulated. Thus, it is conceivable that the differential impacts of cold and hypoxia interact when combined, seeking both thermal balance and adequate oxygenation. At present, the impact of complex stressors and interactions on human function remains poorly understood.


Key Responsibilities

MB BS academic and administrative duties at Norwich Medical School. 

  • Physiology Theme Lead
  • Module 1 (Year 1) Co-Lead.

In addition to the above, my undergraduate teaching roles include problem-based-learning (PBL) facilitation; the delivery of seminars and lectures; and supervising student selected studies and elective placements. I also deliver online webinars or asynchronous online workshops for various undergraduate modules.
