Summary

Module Leader for Conducting Science in Sport, Health and Exercise/ Module Leader for Professional Practice and Clinical Placement/ Admissions Tutor, Sport, Health and Exercise Science. Dr Andrew Simpson is a lecturer in sport, health and exercise science at the University of Hull. In 2015, he was awarded his doctorate qualification, from Brunel University, for a thesis investigating the pathophysiology of exercise-induced bronchoconstriction in athletes. This topic complemented his undergraduate qualification in sport and exercise science, and his clinical experience as health advisor for BUPA and respiratory physiologist at Imperial College London. Before taking up his role at Hull, Dr Simpson completed post-doc training at the University of Manchester, investigating the role of mHealth technology in asthma self-management.

Postgraduate

Dr Simpson welcomes applications in respiratory physiology.
