After completing undergraduate (BSc) and postgraduate studies (MSc and PhD) in Sport & Exercise Sciences (with a specialisation in Exercise and Respiratory Physiology) in France - at the University of Strasbourg and University of Montpellier, respectively -, Pascale joined Dr Sandra D Anderson at the Dept of Respiratory Medicine, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney (Australia) to carry on post-doctoral training. There, she investigated the pathophysiology of exercise-induced bronchoconstriction in athletes and took part to phase III of the clinical trial for AridolTM/OsmohaleTM. AridolTM/OsmohaleTM is a bronchial provocation test aimed at diagnosing asthma patients and managing the condition.
In 2005, Pascale was offered a Lectureship in Exercise Physiology at the School of Medical Sciences, University of Aberdeen (UK). In 2008, she moved to Brunel University London to take up a position as Lecturer in Exercise and Respiratory Physiology. She was promoted Senior Lecturer in 2011.
Pascale is a member of staff in the Division of Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences and is affiliated to the Centre for Human Performance, Exercise and Rehabilitation (CHPER).
Co-director of undergraduate studies for 'Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences'.
