Overview

Owen is currently an Associate Research Fellow in Sport & Health Science, responsible for coordinating a national randomised control trial, examining an online physical activity intervention in patients with cystic fibrosis. 

He was awarded his PhD in 2019, having focused on the role of exercise testing in the assessment and treatment of cystic fibrosis - a genetic condition that predominantly affects the lungs, and affects around 11,000 people in the UK. This follows his BSc in Sport and Exercise Science from the University of Bath (2012) and MSc in Paediatric Exercise and Health from the University of Exeter (2013).

He is also actively involved with the local provision of exercise testing and training at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital, coordinating and leading the exercise testing service; as well as leading the national 'Cystic Fibrosis and Exercise Technicians Network', a group for frontline NHS staff that are responsible for exercise provision in cystic fibrosis.
