Christopher Vine

Research Assistant – Occupational Performance Research Group

Christopher Vine is a research assistant with the Occupational Performance Research Group at the University of Chichester.  Christopher began his studies at the University of Bath in 2011 and as part of his undergraduate degree he completed a yearlong industrial placement at the University of Birmingham’s Hi Performance Centre. In his final year of undergraduate studies Christopher completed a research project investigating the effects of quercetin supplementation on markers of oxidative stress following exercise in the heat. Christopher then proceeded to complete a Masters degree in Sports Performance at the University of Portsmouth. During his studies at Portsmouth he conducted a research project investigating the oxygen uptake kinetics of swimming above and below critical velocity.
