Senior Lecturer in Exercise Physiology, University of East London

Andy Galbraith attained his first degree in Sports Rehabilitation and Sports Science at St Mary's University in 2002. He then completed an MSc in Sport and Exercise Science at Roehampton University. Andy's PhD, which he completed at the University of Kent, investigated the physiology of endurance running performance.

Andy joined the University of East London in August 2015, having previously worked the University of Kent from 2005-2015. His main research interests are in endurance performance, primarily focusing on Critical Speed and the use of the distance-time relationship in endurance training and performance. Andy is a keen runner and provides physiological support to a range of athletes, predominately endurance runners, from a recreational level to international standard.
