Background

Dan joined ARU in September 2000, where he was commissioned with establishing the Sport and Exercise Science degree. Dan has worked in the field of Exercise Physiology for over 20-years, working as both an applied practitioner, academic and researcher. Dan brings a wealth of knowledge both as a physiologist working with elite athletes through to clinical groups and his research into the classroom.

These are combined with Dan being a former GB Paralympic cyclist, a sport for which he still holds a world record to provide a unique and fascinating insight into the physiological of sport and exercise.
