His main research areas focus on exercise with systemic hypoxia (altitude) and localised hypoxia (blood flow restriction), as well as optimising methods to monitor athletic training. Brendan is also a Level 2 Strength and Conditioning Coach with the ASCA, and has consulted as a sports scientist with elite athletes and officials from a range of sports (rugby league, Australian rules football, soccer, elite powerlifting).

Brendan is currently a Senior Lecturer (Strength and Conditioning) at Murdoch University, where he teaches and coordinates units on sports science, functional human anatomy, and strength training.
