I am currently working within the Children’s Health & Exercise Research Centre (CHERC) completing a PhD in cardiorespiratory fitness, cardiac function, and health in young people with congenital heart disease. We aim to investigate the importance of cardiorespiratory fitness and how to improve it. The aim is to help shape future physical activity guidelines and health care policy. I also work in the department of Sport and Health Sciences as a postgraduate teaching associate.
