Profile

James joined the Department for Health at the University of Bath in May 2008 following a 13-year career as an Exercise Physiologist in various Ministry of Defence (MOD) departments, including the Institute of Naval Medicine and the Headquarters Army Recruiting & Training Division (ARTD). Following a 3-year period as Director of Studies for the MSc in Sport & Exercise Medicine, he was Head of Department for Health between August 2011-2017. He currently holds a number of Honorary appointments including Honorary Civilian Consultant Advisor (HCCA) in Sport & Exercise Science to the British Army and Honorary Fellow of the Society of Sport & Exercise Medicine Malaysia (FSSEMM).

He graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University in 1994 and undertook his MSc and PhD at Loughborough University. His research interests centre around occupational and environmental exercise physiology, including injury prediction/prevention and immunological responses to exercise in extreme environments. A further strand, related to his interests in military exercise physiology, is the role of physical activity in the maintenance of health & wellbeing in persons with physical disabilities. He has now published over 30 full journal articles and attracted ~£1 million in external funding. He is currently Director of the DisAbility Sport & Health (DASH) Research Group and a member of the University’s Centre for Regenerative Medicine (CRM).
