More about Javier

Current role: University of Bath - Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Human and Applied Physiology

Dr Javier Gonzalez studied BSc Sport and Exercise Science at NTU before progressing to MRes Exercise Physiology.

Javier knew he wanted to pursue a PhD and knew the MRes Exercise Physiology course offered at NTU would give him the opportunity to gain substantial research experience. NTU was also his first choice as he had studied here for his undergraduate, so already knew the Sport Department well.
