Student Research Interns

Student research interns in Sports and Exercise Science have supported our academics on the following projects:

  • Emily Wood (UG) - Supervised by Dr Iain Spears, funded by InnovateUK

"Developing and evaluating smart leggings for promoting vigorous exercise in older adults."

  • Leksi Wota (UG) - Supervised by Dr Iain Spears, funded by Bergaus Ltd

"Researching literature for next generation female back packs."

  • Rhys Muir and Macey Mulgrave (UG) - Supervised by Annette Pantall, PHSI

"Developing algorithms for high-definition signal-processing of multichannel EMG."

  • Lucy Humphries (UG) - Supervised by Dr Iain Spears and Dr Daniel Eaves, funded by Hardyards Ltd

"Biomechanical testing of new grip socks."

  • Rosie Rostron (UG) - Supervised by Dr Iain Spears, funded by Bergaus Ltd

"Evaluating physiological effects of new designs of female leggings."

This study is ongoing.

Dr Peeters: “To translate findings from an experiment into the real world, experiments need to be accurate, reliable and reproducible. Matt is currently testing the reliability and reproducibility of a cycling exercise protocol which simulates the demands of a cycling road race in highly trained endurance athletes using a commercially available software. As part of his internship he is gaining hands-on experience in exercise physiology and implementing the most recent nutritional interventions to optimise endurance performance.”
