I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Medicine with responsibility for the Interprofessional Learning programme for the Faculty of Health Sciences. My main research interest is in the role of exercise and physical activity in ameliorating treatment side effects and optimising survivorship for patients with cancer. My work considers both the therapeutic and the physiological impact of exercise programmes. I have a particular interest in the role of exercise for patients with complex cancer presentations including patients with cancer of the gastrointestinal tract and those with advanced disease. I have been awarded >€1.6 million in research funding as either principle investigator or co-applicant from external peer-reviewed grants (Health Research Board, Irish Cancer Society, Medical Charities Research Group), external research bursaries (Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists) and internal competitions from the Faculty of Health Sciences, Trinity College. I have published over 50 peer reviewed publications and 1 book chapter. In addition, I lead an interprofessional learning research programme across the Faculty of Health Sciences.
