Malika joined Bournemouth University in September 2017 to start working on her PhD in the Faculty of Health & Social Sciences. She completed her BSc Sport Science at the University of Brighton in 2009 and graduated from the University of Winchester with a distinction in MSc Applied Sport & Exercise Science in 2014. She has worked as a sport and exercise science lab technician, and also as a PTHP lecturer, teaching on the BSc Sport & Exercise Science, Sport Coaching, Strength & Conditioning and MSc Applied Sport & Exercise Science programmes at the University of Winchester. Malika enjoys passing on her knowledge to the next generation of students and to supplement her teaching experience she completed a PgCert in Learning & Teaching in Higher Education, achieving the status of Fellow of the HEA in 2016.
She has been a research assistant on a number of projects including examining physical activity and health data for a County Sports Partnership, assessing the benefits of active workstations, analysing differences in muscle architecture between somatotypes and the reliability of using ultrasound for measurement, and the reliability and validity of NIRs placement in analysing executive function in relation to EEG at rest and during exercise... Malika is also an ISAK Level Two Anthropometrist, trained as a technician in the measurement of body composition, and assists in teaching Level One ISAK courses in the UK and Ireland.
She has recently moved into more health orientated research and before joining BU was assisting academics in setting up an exercise and education clinic for stroke survivors in Winchester. She was also involved in collating impact evidence for projects looking forward to REF 2021, which gave her the passion to produce her own research that can have a real life impact outside of academia. She will continue along this path at BU examining the effects of using a slow and deep breathing intervention on women with high blood pressure caused by pregnancy.more
