My research interests sit firmly in the promotion of physical activity and exercise with healthy dietary practices among individuals with overweight/obesity and type 2 diabetes. My current research portfolio includes investigations of the timing of nutritional intake and exercise with glycaemic control and how these interactions manifest into long term adaptations. I enjoy working with likeminded colleagues and collaborating across disciplines (i.e. psychology). I am a strong believer in practicing what you preach and enjoy exercise through cycling and swimming outside of work.
