BSc (Hons), MSc, FHEA
George has completed a BSc (Hons), and MSc degree in Sport and Exercise Science with a focus on Exercise Physiology. He started employment as a Senior Laboratory Technician and subsequently progressed to Technician Demonstrator followed by Lecturer in Sports and Exercise Science which is his current role at the University. His module leadership includes: Exercise Physiology II and Applied Sports Physiology, alongside undergraduate and postgraduate dissertation supervision. He is currently undertaking a PhD titled: Novel biomarkers of vascular oxygen transport; exploring the mechanistic link between impaired cardiopulmonary fitness and post-operative mortality, and morbidity
Alongside his academic studies, George has competed as an international road cyclist and has used this experience in providing physiological support and coaching guidance to endurance athletes, many of whom have become national champions in their chosen discipline. More recently George’s focus has moved towards the mechanistic understanding of oxygen transport and interventions designed to improve post-operative survival in clinical populations.
