Dr David Muggeridge

Lecturer

Biography

I graduated from my undergraduate B.Sc with Honours in Sport Science at Kingston University in 2011. I went on to complete my Ph.D in Exercise Physiology at University of the West of Scotland in 2015, investigating the influence of dietary nitrate supplementation and UV-A light exposure on parameters of exercise in healthy adult males. Postdoctoral and research fellow positions followed in the area of cardiovascular and digital health with focus on measurement, physical activity and exercise and their relation to human physiology.

I am currently a Lecturer in Exercise Physiology at Edinburgh Napier University. I am part of the sport, exercise and health research group and teach across the sport and exercise science programmes. I am the module leader for Intermediate Exercise Physiology (Level 9) and contribute to Foundations of sport and Exercise science (level 7), Introduction to Exercise Physiology (level 8) and Advanced Exercise Physiology (Level 10).
