Following an undergraduate degree in Biochemistry (BSc, JMU) and 3-years working within academic (University of Liverpool) and pharmaceutical research (Astra Zeneca), Julian returned to Liverpool John Moores University to study for an MSc in Sport Physiology. An 8-year period followed working in education and applied sport science within professional soccer, rugby union and international hockey before starting a PhD at Bangor University in 2010. In 2013-2014 Julian was a Postdoctoral Fellow within the School before being appointed as a Lecturer in 2014.

PhD Supervision - Claire Griffith-McGeever (2015 - to present) - Inspiratory effort percetion and interoception to dyspnoea in health and obstructive sleep apnoea.
My current research focusses on human respiratory control, perceptions of breathlessness and respiratory effort in health and disease. I am particularly interested in how these factors alter with disease and change in response to exercise training. I also have an interest in human fluid balance, particularly biomarkers of dehydration, and how fluid-deficits affect exercise performance and health.
