I graduated from the University of Portsmouth in 2012 with a first class honours degree in Sports and Exercise Science. I undertook the MRes Science course from September 2012 to September 2013. I returned to the department to complete my PhD within the Research Group in Breast Health in October 2013. I am also a trained bra fitter and have had three years of experience as a bra fitter within retail.


My research interests are in the area of breast health and biomechanics, particularly within the area of breast pain. I am keen to investigate all types of breast pain; cyclical, non-cyclical and exercise-related pain.
