I completed my BSc in sports Science at the University of Brighton and an MSc in Sports Science (Fitness and Health) at the University of Essex. I obtained my PhD in Medicine at the University of London. I have taught and undertaken research at the University of Essex, Kings College London, Queen Mary University of London and the University of East Anglia.
My research focusses on health and wellbeing, particularly the management of chronic fatigue through exercise, and looking at the effects of shift work on sleep and fatigue. I have developed graded exercise interventions and trained and supervised therapists to deliver those interventions.
