Robert Mann

Associate Research Fellow

 Baring Court 

 

Baring Court, University of Exeter St Luke's Campus, Heavitree Road, Exeter, EX1 2LU, UK

Overview

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. Rob's current research is aimed at supporting current and future athletes enrolled on England Athletics’ Youth Talent Programme. 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. Rob has recently passed his viva (subject to minor amendments), having been supervised by Associate Prof. Alan Barker (University of Exeter), Prof. Craig Williams (University of Exeter), and Dr. Bryan Clift (University of Bath).     

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. Before commencing his PhD studies, Rob completed an MRes in Health and Wellbeing (University of Exeter) and a BA in Sport and Social Science (University of Bath).
