Research Interests

  • Dysfunctions in the stress-response, inflammation and bioenergetic systems in mental illness: Targets for exercise and nutrition interventions?
  • Immune/Inflammatory responses to exercise
  • Monitoring disease, health and adaptation to exercise using non-invasive methods e.g. heart rate variability, salivary biomarkers, Ethylene trace gas deterction, skin autofluorescence
  • Strategies to reduce severity of and enhance recovery from exercise-induced muscle damage
  • Understanding lipolysis in response to exercise and nutrition interventions using the microdialysis technique
