My research interests are primarily focused on developing and assessing ways to enhance endurance (aerobic) performance – both in individual sports such as running, cycling and triathlon, but also in team sport athletes.
Current Research Projects:
- Energy availability and menstrual dysfunction in female endurance athletes.
- Novel methods to enhance running economy in distance runners.
- Development of small-sided games for young athletes.
- Heart rate variability in elite endurance athletes.
- Physiological demands of competitive surfing.
- Effects of nutritional supplements to enhance high-intensity exercise performance.
- Respiratory muscle training and sports performance.
