M.Sc., PhD (c)
My background and passion is in Exercise, Nutrition and Health in general. In 2009, I received my Diploma in Exercise Science from the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, Germany. During my studies in Germany, I specialized in the prevention and treatment of injuries with myofascial release techniques. Based on my knowledge and expertise the area, I was selected to be the Athletic Trainer for Team Jamaica Track and Field at the 2010 Penn Relays. My degree in Germany also led me to Canada where I completed a 6-week internship at the Fitness Institute in North York. Following the completion of my degree in Germany I came to Canada and started my MSc in nutritional science at the University of Toronto, investigating the effects of substrate oxidation on food intake. I then embarked on my PhD in the with my previous supervisor, looking at the effects of exercise on inflammation and appetite. Outside from my academic work, I am I am very active in a variety of health-related topics. In 2009 and 2013 I was involved with fitness and lifestyle start-up companies and in 2016, I also commenced my own experimental trial, to investigate the effects of Pokemon Go, as a geotracking game prototype, on physical activity and BMI, as I foresee a tremendous potential in smartphone and wearable technology to monitor and improve health. In my free-time, I enjoy competing in a wide variety of sports, such as track and field, weightlifting and Muay-Thai.
