Dance Science Laboratory Technician
Scott graduated from University College Cork in 2014 with a BSc (Hons) in Physiology and then continued on to study his MSc in Sport and Exercise Physiology at Middlesex University, where he graduated with first class honours. Scott was first introduced to Dance Science whilst working closely with Scott Hannah, who is now a senior lecturer at British College of Osteopathic Medicine. Scott's research during undergraduate studies focused primarily on the vasculature system using in vivo models. The aim of the research was to identify which component(s) of the glycocalyx were responsible for sheer stress-mediated dilatation within the iliac artery. Scott explored further areas of research during his time on the Master's course. His focus was on immunological studies looking at exercise-induced pulmonary inflammation on endurance runners.
Scott has worked in sports-based laboratories, assisting with extensive physiological testing of both elite athletes and normal populations. Scott is a keen interest in various sports including football, rugby and martial arts.
Scott is primarily responsible for maintaining and developing the laboratory facilities in the dance science department and also assists with current research projects.
