    Overview

    My current research is focused around the physiology of endurance performance, with a special interest in long-distance running. I am currently investigating a range of methods to reduce the oxygen cost during endurance running, including the use of altered stride rates and compression garments. I am Director of Studies for a number of postgraduate research students at UEL and I lead our Applied Sport Sciences Research group (ASSRG)
