In 2013 I was awarded my PhD from Coventry University for my work exploring the direct treatment of physiologically relevant concentrations of caffeine on isolated muscle performance. Although I continue to develop this work in human and animal models, my more recent research interests have been examining how mechanical properties of skeletal muscle change in response to increasing age. I have worked with leading international collaborators in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, France, UK and USA on a number of research projects including skeletal muscle ageing, temperature effects on skeletal muscle and locotomory performance in a number of different vertebrae species. We are continuing this collaborative work for upcoming projects whilst looking to establish new research links for our ageing research. Current work examining the effect of intramuscular fat accumulation on isolated muscle performance and the influence of this on muscle ageing is being supported by grant funding from TANITA.

Area of Expertise:

Skeletal muscle mechanics using the work loop technique

Vision Statement

Although valuable, previous techniques examining isolated muscle mechanics have poor relation to real life muscle function. By using the work loop technique we can get a better understanding of skeletal muscle performance during dynamic activity similar to what would occur in vivo. Our research group are world leaders in this technique and my interests focus on how this method can be applied to improve our understanding of muscle mechanics in relation to human muscle performance. My key areas of interest are exploring direct responses to ergogenic aids and the measurement and prevention of the age related decline in muscle performance.
