Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Nutrition

Stephen graduated with a BSc and MSc in Sport and Exercise Science from the University of Wales Institute Cardiff in 2006 and 2008, respectively.  He was awarded his PhD in Exercise Physiology in 2011 from the University of Exeter.  Shortly after the completion of his PhD, Stephen was appointed as a Lecturer of Exercise Physiology at the University of Exeter.

Stephen joined the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences in September 2016 as a Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Nutrition.

Stephen is a member of the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences, The Physiological Society and the European College of Sport Sciences, and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. 

Stephen’s research is focused on improving human health and performance through nutritional and exercise interventions.  His research has explored the effects of exercise training, prior ‘warm up’ exercise and pacing strategies on oxygen uptake kinetics and performance, and the effects of nitric oxide precursors on cardiovascular health, skeletal muscle metabolism and exercise performance.  

Stephen is an Associate Editor for BMC Sport Science, Medicine and Rehabilitation, and serves on the Editorial Board for Scientific Reports and the Reviewer Panel for the European College of Sport Sciences.  He has delivered invited presentations at the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences, European College of Sport Sciences and the American College of Sports Medicine annual conferences. 

Stephen has served as a reviewer for the following journals:   

American Journal of Physiology: Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology; Applied Physiology, Nutrition and Metabolism; British Journal of Nutrition; Clinical Nutrition; Diabetes; European Journal of Applied Physiology; European Journal of Nutrition; European Journal of Sport Sciences; Future Cardiology; International Journal of Sports Medicine; International Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism; International Journal of Sports Physiology and Performance; Journal of Aging and Physical Activity; Journal of Applied Physiology; Journal of Functional Foods; Journal of Physiology; Journal of Sport Sciences; Journal of Sport Science and Medicine; Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition; Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise; Nitric Oxide; Nutrients; PLoS One; Sports Medicine.
