My expertise in football science is a product of my academic research and my practical experience within the sport. I am currently an Industrial Professorial Fellow at the university following other academic positions at Liverpool John Moores University (2002 – 2019), Durham University (1999-2002) and The University of Teesside (1997-1999). I have published over 140 peer-reviewed scientific articles in the area of exercise physiology. I have acted as a sport science consultant to a number of elite football clubs including Liverpool Football Club, Glasgow Rangers Football Club, West Bromich Albion Football Club, Middlesbrough Football Club and the England Senior Men’s Football team. I am also actively involved in directing the research related CPD of a number of other staff at clubs in both the Premier and Football League and football organisations internationally. I also have good links within the sports industry providing expert knowledge to companies such as Nike and Catapult.
