I am a clinical exercise physiologist with a degree in sports science and a PhD in exercise physiology and metabolism. My PhD research focused on developing the optimal lifestyle intervention for weight loss and health, and I continue to be an active researcher in this area. I coordinate and lecture on the BSc Sports Science with Exercise Physiology in Athlone Institute of Technology and have done since September 2011. I lecture predominantly in the areas of exercise physiology and metabolism, and clinical exercise physiology, and I supervise masters and PhD research in these areas. In 2015 I was invited to be part of a metabolic health research team working on European Space Agency funded bed rest studies, this work is ongoing. I have been a partner in True Fitness since 2008 where I predominantly deliver our True Transformation healthy living programme, deliver a range of health and fitness workshops, conduct health related research, and oversee our sports science clinic. Any spare time I have is spent training for ultra-endurance events, which we use to raise funds for local charities. Two of our most recent events included kayaking around Ireland (1,000 miles – 14 to 17 hours per day for 40 days) in July 2014, and cycling around Ireland (2,100km – 15 hours per day for 7 days) in August 2015. My passion is health and fitness, and teaching people to develop and sustain a healthy lifestyle and do things they never thought possible.
