Rob is currently an Associate Research Fellow in the Children’s Health and Exercise Research Centre. This role is funded via two Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Impact Acceleration Account Awards.

As a broad academic field, Rob is interested in "athlete health protection" – embracing a multidisciplinary approach.
Alongside his current role, Rob is nearing completion of an ESRC funded PhD studentship (1+3). His thesis is concentrated on the health and wellbeing of competitive adolescent distance runners, including topics related to monitoring training load, injury and illness epidemiology, and psychosocial responses to injury.

During his PhD studentship, Rob benefited from being able to undertake an overseas institutional visit to the Oslo Sports Trauma Research Center (Norway) and a Fellowship at the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology.
