I am a professor in the Division of Exercise Science and Sports Medicine, University of Cape Town. My research has focussed on the biological adaptations and maladaptations that occur after exposure to regular exercise. The main message from this work was that adaptation to exercise is individualistic and needs to be carefully monitored to prevent any signs of distress. This became an important thread embedded in my research.
I am the editor-in-chief of the South African Journal of Sports Medicine and have been since 2000.
