Senior Research Fellow, University of Waikato


My career has focused on understanding how individuals respond to various exercise stimuli and striving to maximize functional adaptation and recovery. I have been privileged to be involved with a wide range of elite sports teams as well as talented and dedicated sports scientists with a breadth of experience across physiology, nutrition, biochemistry, injury prevention, and biomechanics. HIIT weapons have formed an integral part of the training puzzle. My career highlight remains the time I spent working with paralympians during my time in Malaysia and to contribute in some small way to their world-beating achievements at the Rio Olympics.
