Sue joined the School of Medicine in January 2016, and lectures in Physiology, mainly on the MBBS, BSc Medical Sciences and Physicians’ Associates programmes. She has particular interest in the areas of cardiorespiratory control, physiology in extreme environments and physiology of physical activity.
After graduating from the University of Leeds (BSc Hons Physiology), Sue worked for a year on a research project on cancer, after which she completed a PhD in the Department of Respiratory Medicine at the University of Edinburgh (thesis title: ‘Measurement of hypoxic ventilatory drive at rest and during exercise in normal man’). She then completed six years’ research into cardiorespiratory control at Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School and the University of Wales, Cardiff (Common Cold Centre), and had several papers published. In the following years, her career was focussed on learning & teaching and programme management, with her most recent HE appointments prior to joining UCLan being Director of Studies for Sport programmes at the University of Cumbria and Deputy Head of the International Study Centre at Lancaster University.
