Summary

Dr Andrew Simpson is a Lecturer in Exercise and Respiratory Physiology the University of Hull.

In 2015, Andrew was awarded a 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.
