Research

Caroline is a BASES accredited physiologist with chartered scientist status. Caroline's main interests lie in thermoregulatory physiology and she is currently completing her doctoral studies investigating incidence, monitory and prevention of exertional heat illness in the Armed Forces. She has also completed work exploring paediatric heat acclimation. Caroline is also an accredited strength and conditioning coach to the UKSCA and NSCA. She has engaged in applied conditioning work with a number of athletes ranging from GB Taekwondo to Premiership footballers.
