Current Position:


Research Interests:

I am interested in understanding the influence of lifestyle factors (e.g., physical activity, nutrition), have upon brain structures, metabolic health in disease (as example: obesity, diabetes, insulin action), and the impacts on behaviour.
Current research interests include:

  • Importance of brain structures in obesity and diabetes: the interaction between behaviour, habits, and physical activity.
  • The relationship between brain, gut, exercise, and behaviour.
  • The neurobiological basis of stress-related disorders such as depression.

Previously, at the APC Microbiome Ireland, I focussed on understanding the interaction between brain gut & microbiome axis and exercise, and how these mediate behaviour in stress related disorders (e.g., trptophan metabolism, inflammation, immune response).

Previous research has been: exercise physiology and performance, ageing, decision making, perception-action, motor control, reaching and prehension with fMRI, exercise and cognitive function.
