PhD Student

 Baring Court BC135

 

Baring Court, University of Exeter St Luke's Campus, Heavitree Road, Exeter, EX1 2LU, UK

Overview

I joined Sport and Health Sciences in 2019 to complete a PhD in Echocardiography, Cardiorespiratory Fitness and Rehabilitation in Paediatric Congenital Heart under the supervision of Professor Craig Williams at the Children’s Health & Exercise Research Centre (CHERC).

During my undergraduate and postgraduate medical training I have undergone research in surgical outcomes of congenital heart disease treatment at the University of Bristol and Bristol Royal Hospital for Children, focusing on paediatric and young adult populations. I recently completed my cardiology specialty training, with a focus on adult congenital heart disease and advanced echocardiography.

My PhD investigates the role of exercise imaging and functional testing in evaluating patients with congenital and inherited cardiac diseases, and how a rehabilitation programme could be implemented in this population. We will be performing exercise echocardiography with myocardial strain measurements, with concomitant cardiopulmonary testing, in order to determine the relationship between cardiac and respiratory function during exercise.
