Dr Judy Thomas MSc, BHK(Hons)

Lecturer

School of Health Sciences

I am the Senior Tutor on Albany campus for Human Bioscience papers in the College of Health (214.101, 214.102, 214.201 and 214.202). My research background is in exercise physiology. However my current research interests include the influence of exercise and other healthy behaviours on cognitive aging, particularly through their effects on vascular health. I have a real passion for teaching, particularly for first year bioscience papers.
