Personal profile

Research interests

My primary research interests are the effects of testosterone suppression or supplementation on the athletic performance of Transgender Athletes. My secondary interest is how Bone responds to mechanical stress during exercise and how bone health could be improved via exercise interventions. 

While examining how hormone replacement therapy (HRT) affects the athletic performance of Transgender Athletes, I am also interested in the changes in their physiological sports performance outcomes, and how these measures can be related to individual sports to create new inclusion policies for these sports. I am keen to examine what advantages/disadvantages in a sport that Transgender athletes have and create the sports performance data needed to facilitate the fair inclusion of these athletes.
