I enjoy cycling, running, and snow skiing and compete in cycling events at local and National level. I enjoy a good movies, music, fine arts, the outdoors, and travel.
Roles and Responsibilities
Director of Exercise Physiology and Metabolism Lab, Wellington Campus
I conduct leading original research in human health and performance nutrition, with the objective of producing work that ranks amongst the best of its kind in the world. Teaching is research-informed that fully engages students in current concepts promoting independent and investigative thinking. While consolidating skillbase in exercise metabolism, I look to the future for trends and patterns to for ongoing research alignment, niche, work (e.g. genomics, proteomics, progressive statistics). I foster strong and active collaborations with public and private organisations and companies both locally and internationally to product innovated outputs to both knowledge for health, profitability, and science advancement.
