Dr Richard Winsley
Associate Professor and Associate Dean Education (CLES)


I completed my PhD at the Children‘s Health and Exercise Research Centre at the University of Exeter investigating the determinants of aerobic fitness in children.  Subsequently I spent time as a post-Doctoral research fellow at the Royal Devon & Exeter hospital, investigating heart rate variability modification with exercise training in cardiac rehabilitation patients. I then worked for 3-years as a Clinical Exercise Physiologist in the National Health Service at the Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals with both cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation patients in addition to coordinating a GP exercise on prescription scheme. I then re-joined the University of Exeter which allows me the on-going privilege of expanding my teaching and research interests but more importantly to work with the next generation of our students.

Broad research / teaching specialisms:

  • Overtraining / overreaching in children and adults
  • Children’s cardiovascular function and exercise
  • Clinical Exercise physiology and exercise prescription
  • Learning styles in children and adults


  • BA(Ed) Hons. University of Exeter 1993
  • PhD University of Exeter 1997
