Personal profile

Research Interests

My research focus is improving the health and wellbeing of patients with cardiac conditions. In particular, I investigate pathophysiology and disease mechanisms, with an interest in the effect of exercise on prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. I have performed quantitative and qualitative research in the area of secondary prevention of coronary artery disease, which involved exploring methods of promoting patient participation in cardiac rehabilitation, and investigating the molecular mechanisms that mediate exercise-induced cardioprotection.
