Dr Phillip Chapman - Nat Sch Exercise Science (Faculty of Health Sciences)

Accreditation in-progress - Supervisor is eligible to co-supervise with another fully accredited supervisor (Principal Supervisor)


My research interests include thermoregulation responses to exercise in different climatic environments. In particular, the role of the cardiovascular system under thermal stress and the limits to prolonged submaximal exercise in the heat. Other research interests include the effect of dietary manipulations and eccentric muscle damage on exercise performance.

I am a keen cyclist and advocate exercise thoughout the lifespan as a preventative measure against chronic disease arising from a sedentary lifestyle...........not to mention it is also heaps of fun! :)
