Project title Research student
Mitigating heat-related fatigue and symptomology in healthy and clinical populations Timothy ENGLISH
The effect of high intensity progressive resistance training and high intensity interval training on gait stability and fall risk in older adults with mild cognitive impairment Tess HAWKINS
The effect of acute caffeine ingestion on thermoregulatory responses to exercise in the heat in caffeine-habituated and non-habituated individuals Lindsey HUNT
The proposed thesis will look at creating a set of guidelines that can be used in both team and individual sporting contexts to optimally prepare athletes for heat exposure in competition. It will do this by looking at the a) environmental conditions Grant LYNCH
