In June 2019 I achieved a first class honours degree from the University of Exeter in Exercise and Sport Science. Throughout this course I developed my resilience and analytical skills, as well as gaining valuable research expertise during completion of my dissertation project. For my final year dissertation, I chose to work within the physical activity and health field with a particular interest in the acute effects of prolonged sitting on appetite, cognitive function and blood pressure.
Upon completion of my undergraduate degree I was successful in gaining a funded Masters by research in collaboration with Somerset Activity and Sport Partnership (SASP) which commenced in September 2019. This masters programme compliments my final year dissertation perfectly with its focus on physical activity interventions with the aim to reduce sitting time and increase physical activity in children, within a primary school setting.
I look forward to working with SASP over the course of my master’s degree and hope to one day pursue a career within the physical activity and health field in the clinical population.
