My Biography

Aubrey joined the Department of Health, Sport and Exercise Science in 2004 as a lecturer in exercise and health science having graduated with a primary honours degree from Trinity College Dublin (2000) in Natural Sciences (specialising in Human Physiology)  and a MSc. in Biomedical Sciences form the University of Ulster (specialising in Haematology). Supported by Enterprise Ireland and Trinity Postgraduate Awards he spent some time as a postgraduate researcher in the Dept. of Physiology, TCD investigating the physiology and biomechanics of running, where he also worked as a part-time lecturer with responsibility for delivery of Physiology practical classes to Medicine and Physiotherapy students. 

Research

Aubrey is primarily interested in researching cardivascular and metabolic responses to exercise, but also has significant involvement in occupational health research. His principle areas of research interest are:

  • Physiological effects of blood flow restriction and ischemic preconditioning on exercise performance
  • Occupational health of Irish farmers

Teaching

Aubrey plays a lead role in the delivery and development of science-related modules across all four undergraduate degree programmes in the Department of Health, Sport and Exercise Science. The modules Aubrey currently teach are:

  • Introduction to Sport and Exercise Science 
  • Biomolecules and Cells 
  • Exercise Physiology 
  • Human Anatomy and Physiology 
  • Health Screening 
  • Exerccise as Medicine
  • Major Projects
  • Clinical Exercise Physiology 
  • Research Techniques in Exercise Science 
  • Dissertation
