Contact Details


Jo received a BSc (hons) degree in Sport Science (psychology) from Liverpool John Moores University in 2003 and stayed on to complete an MSc in Sport Physiology in 2004. Jo remained at John Moores to complete her PhD on "The Impact of Human Body Composition using Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry" in March 2007. Whilst at JMU she also provided physiological support to local professional athletes, football and Rugby clubs. In addition, Jo was awarded a postgraduate certificate in Teaching in Higher Education (PGCTHE) in 2010 ans is now a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. She was appointed as a lecturer at Aberystwyth University in October 2007.



Anatomy and body systems specialising in musculoskeletal measures of body composition. Research areas focus on health and exercise interventions in diseased populations; osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes and cancer rehabilitation.
