Harry Marshall

Lecturer in Zoology

I am a behavioural and evolutionary ecologist and I am interested in animal social behaviour and how the costs and benefits of this vary between social group members. I am particularly interested in how social individuals' behaviour is influenced by changes in the environment, how these individual b...

Senior Lecturer in Environmental Physiology

My main research interest is exercise performed in extremely hot and cold environments. More specifically my main interest focuses on the role that cooling interventions may play in improving exercise performance in such conditions.

Steven Trangmar

Steven Trangmar

Lecturer in Cardiovascular & Exercise Physiology

My research focuses on the brain and limb haemodynamic and metabolic adjustments to exhaustive exercise, hyperthermia and exercise-induced dehydration. I am currently studying cerebral blood flow and metabolism during exercise - the cardiovascular responses to exercise heat stress & dehydration and ...
