Mike’s expertise is in the methodology and statistics of systematic reviews. His research interests lie in the epidemiology of disease, especially regarding physical activity and psychological associations.
After leaving the military, Mike gained a foundation degree through the Open University, and has since completed his Bachelors and Masters degrees in Sport and Exercise Science at ARU. Mike is currently studying for his PhD in Sports Science in the School of Psychology and Sport Science, with the specialty of exercise addiction and its links to eating disorders.
In recent years, Mike has published several peer-reviewed papers - a large proportion of which are systematic reviews and meta-analyses.
