    Research areas

    My research interests are primarily focused on the benefits of exercise in clinical populations. I have implement exercise interventions for cancer patients throughout various stages of their treatment (pre, during and post treatment).

    I have established collaborative links with Fiona Stanley Hospital working with various clinical populations including burns, head and neck cancer and general surgery patients.

    In addition to this my research interests also include hydration and thermoregulatory responses to exercise in the heat

    Current projects

    Energy Balance Profile in Acute Burns Patients – Collaboration between Murdoch University and Fiona Stanley Hospital

    The Effect of a Physical Exercise and Education Prehabilitation Program in General Surgery Patients - Collaboration between Murdoch University and Fiona Stanley Hospital

    The influence of temporal location on physiological and perceptual outcomes during high-intensity interval training in trained cyclists

    Strength Training Enhances Recovery After Surgery (STERAS) project. Assessing the impact of a strength focused exercise intervention prior to and post surgery in head and neck cancer patients. Collaboration between Murdoch University and Fiona Stanley Hospital
