I completed my Bachelor of Physical Education at the University of Otago in 2002 before pursuing postgraduate study in exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation at the University of Auckland in 2003. Subsequently, I worked in cardiac rehabilitation for a few years before moving to the United Kingdom and working as a cardiac physiologist doing exercise stress testing and 24hr ECG. Upon my return to NZ, I provided consultation and worked in the cardiac rehabilitation programme at the University of Auckland before completing my MSc in 2012. Over the past 7 years I started and finished my PhD while coordinating and teaching an undergraduate exercise prescription course as well as contributing to the postgraduate courses in clinical exercise physiology at the University of Auckland. In 2018, I joined Flinders University as a lecturer in Exercise Science.

I have multiple research interests that all cluster around the use of exercise to prevent disease progression. Recently, my main research focus has been on using Metabolic Syndrome as a model to detect apparently healthy young adults who have a high lifetime risk of disease.
