Research Interests

My research interests steam from the use of exercise to improve health.  My background is in Sport and Exercise Science, and I have worked in a variety of clinical and elite settings.

I am interested in how Bone responds to mechanical stress, with a view to improve bone health via exercise interventions.  This includes both traditional impact exercise, which is very good for bone, and trying to utilise High-intensity Interval Training to improve bone health.

I am also interested in the use of biochemical markers of bone turnover, and how these measures related to traditional x-ray measures of bone health.  I am keen to examine how these measures correlate, with the view to developing more accurate screening tools for Osteoporosis development.
