Senior Research Fellow (Exercise Science), Murdoch University

Brendan received his PhD from the University of Newcastle in 2016, which investigated the effects of hypoxia on responses to resistance exercise. He has published >45 scientific articles, focused on exercise with systemic hypoxia (altitude) and localised hypoxia (blood flow restriction), as well as optimising methods to monitor athletic training. Brendan has consulted as a sports scientist with elite athletes and officials from a range of sports (including rugby league, Australian rules football, soccer, elite powerlifting), and his work has been used to develop best-practice guidelines for blood flow restriction exercise in elite sporting environments. Brendan is currently a Senior Research Fellow (Exercise Science) at Murdoch University, and holds accreditation as a Level 2 Sports Scientist with ESSA, and Level 2 Strength and Conditioning Coach with the ASCA.
