Lynsey completed her BSc in Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Birmingham in 2006 and continued onto an MSc in Exercise Physiology at Loughborough University. She then worked in applied sports science support within professional football and rugby, in addition to individual marathon runners, cyclists and triathletes down in sunny Plymouth. Lynsey moved back into the world of academia for a role as a Teaching Assistant at Coventry University, where she also continued to provide some applied sports science support for professional football players, boxers and water polo players. She also became a Fellow of the Higher Education Authority.

Lynsey returned to Loughborough in December 2013 to take up a role as Technical Tutor in Exercise Physiology and began her current role in 2022. In 2021 she completed her part time PhD in Omega-3, Sports Performance and Recovery. Lynsey teaches primarily on physiology and nutrition lab-based modules across the undergraduate degrees Sport and Exercise Science, and Sport, Coaching and Physical Education, and postgraduate degree Physiology and Nutrition of Sport and Exercise.

In her spare time Lynsey enjoys playing water polo and netball.

Lynsey’s research interests include improving sports performance through improving recovery / reducing muscle damage using nutritional aids such as Omega-3 and curcumin. Lynsey is also interested in anti-doping.
