My Sports Science undergraduate motivated me to move from Colombia to the UK back in 2015. Throughout my time in Nottingham, I qualified as a Coach in multiple sports, Personal Trainer and GP referral. I have worked for several years in elite sports including clubs like Norwich City FC and Nova Centurion SC. Alongside being a Researcher, I am a Health and Exercise Consultant, helping a range of people from the clinical population to elite athletes achieve their health and performance goals.

So far, Sebastian's involvement is supporting the Sports Rehabilitation students in their practical sessions. In addition, Sebastian has been an active part of the assessing panel for various Med school courses.

Research interests

I have a strong interest in exercise physiology and using it as a medicine. This includes my current work in Exercise Oncology looking at how exercise can modulate cancer survival outcomes and quality of life. I am also passionate about elite sporting performance. This not only includes enhancing sporting performance but also research around female athlete physiology and addressing the gender gap in sport.
