Research Interests

My interests include defining the match and training demands of Cricket, and investigating potential performance enhancement strategies in Cricket and Triathlon. I have had a particular focus on the fitness and conditioning activities of athletes, and preparations for challenging environmental conditions through acclimation and acclimatisation.
