Kat is a lecturer in Sport and Exercise Science. She started studying Physiological Science at the University of Bristol, with a focus on cardiology and neuroscience and has since acheived Masters degrees in Sport and Exercise Physiology and Sport and Exercise Nutrition.
Kat started worked at London Metropolitan University but has been with the London Sport Institute since 2015. Her teaching covers Physiology across all year groups, as well as Movement Analysis, Professional Skills and Undergraduate and Postgraduate nutrition.
She is module leader for Advanced Sport and Exercise Science and Applied Sport and Exercise Nutrition, as well as supervising year 2 and 3 dissertation students.
Kat has worked with many elite athletes in cycling, rugby, football, tennis and boxing, as well as some Team GB athletes in track and field.
Kat's research focus is on:
She has a particular interest in teaching extreme environmental physiology and cardiopulmonary and anaerobic physiology.
