Personal profile

Overview

In 2016 I graduated from UWS with a first class honours degree in Sport and Exercise Science. During my time at UWS I was awarded studenships from the Carnegie Foundation and the Physiological Society allowing me to complete preliminary research on the effects of nitric oxide on cardiovascular health and also seasonal uptake of nitric oxide via UVA light in humans. In 2017 I was awarded a Ph.D studentship from the Hannah Foundation to continue my research into nitric oxide. My focus is now on the interactions between the oral microbiome and cardiovascular health.

I coach youth cycling and I am also a Sports Massage Therapist working with a range of clients from athletes to eldery and infirm memebers of the public.
