I joined the Bioenergetics and Human Performance Research Group in October 2008 to embark on a PhD looking at the physiological responses to ultra-distance running, with an emphasis on body temperature regulation during particularly challenging competitive events (either because of hot and humid weather conditions and/or because of a though race profile).
I initially graduated in Dietetics (Claude Bernard University Institute of Technology, Lyon, France), Sport & Exercise Science (Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland) & Ergonomics (University of South Normandy, Caen, France) and maintain a genuine interest about the interactions taking place between individuals, their activities and the environment they are evolving in.
