On completion of his PhD data collection, David joined Sheffield Hallam University in 2007 and is now Senior lecturer in Physical Activity, Health and Exercise Science and Postgraduate Research Tutor for Sport. He previously worked for the BHF National Centre for Physical Activity and Health whilst completing a Masters in Physical Activity and Health part time in 2004. David has a broad interest in the benefits of physical activity for health but has examined the effects of exercise on appetite and appetite related hormones and has been involved in the development, monitoring and evaluation of a childhood obesity intervention.
David is Senior Lecturer in Physical Activity, Health and Exercise Science and Postgraduate Research Tutor for Sport. He teaches on the exercise prescription and physiology related modules of the Sport and Exercise Science and Physical Activity related degrees. He previously course led BSc (Hons) Physical Activity, Health and Exercise Science where it was his responsibility to work with academic and support colleagues to ensure its successful organisation and operation leading to excellent student experience.
He is an appointed Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and is passionate about delivering excellent learning and teaching experiences and providing opportunities for the sport and exercise scientists and practitioners of the future. This has been recognised through receiving two inspirational teaching awards.
Despite a heavy teaching load he strives to undertake research that is meaningful and can be translated into practice. He has numerous publications in journals and a track record for income generation. His research interests are predominantly the physiology of exercise and health and the prescription and promotion of physical activity. Recent work has involved the study of the effects of exercise on appetite, energy intake and expenditure and appetite related hormones as well as the effects of exercise on cardiovascular disease risk factors such as blood pressure and postprandial lipemia. David has evaluated health service provision including physical activity referral and developed, monitored and evaluated a childhood obesity intervention for local authorities in the North East and North West of England.
David supervises PhD and Professional Doctorate students and has presented at many UK and international conferences including invited keynotes. He is on the editorial board of the British Association of Sport and Exercise Science's (BASES) publication 'The Sport and Exercise Scientist' and is on the advisory board for the ‘Journal of Sports Sciences’. David is Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and BASES for services to the organisations.
