Achievement: Travelled to France for the football European Championship 2016, stayed for nearly the entire duration of the tournament and attended 4 games across the southern half of France.
Dissertation Title: Resting blood oxygen saturation, heart rate and blood pressure at moderate altitude Successful MSc dissertation, facilitated by VIP SKI, investigating the effects of acute and chronic exposure to moderate altitude (MA, >1500m) upon several physiological markers in healthy adults. The main finding, as hypothesised, was that acute MA exposure caused an acute reduction in in blood oxygen saturation (P<0.001). A return to normal near sea-level baseline values was reported for greater time spent at MA, and suspected due to acclimatisation. However, conclusive timeframes for acclimatisation could not be reported due to a lack of data. Additional findings were that heart rate and blood pressure were not affected by acute exposure to MA, despite being shown to change at higher altitudes. Suggesting that the study altitude of 1500m was simply too low to incur physiological change for these variables.
Achievement: Travelled to Brazil for the football World Cup 2014, stayed for the entire duration of the tournament and attended 7 games across the length of Brazil.
Football League 1 (2011-2012) Academy Product Research Quantitative research project investigating the influence of teams' own academy products (been with club before signing YTS) upon club performance for all League 1 clubs during the 2011-2012 season. Main findings were that a number of clubs, Exeter City FC prominent among them, had greater contributions from academy products compared to clubs who relied more heavily upon signings, believed to be costlier alternatives. This suggested clubs such as Exeter City FC possess academies and youth structures capable of producing players of a higher quality, able to compete at a higher level than those produced by other clubs in the football league.
Dissertation Title: The influence of barefoot training in Vibram Fivefingers upon toe flexor strength and multidirectional agility in adult male footballers Successful final year undergraduate dissertation, sponsored by Vibram Fivefingers, investigating the effects of barefoot activity and training.
