Faye Walker is a Research Assistant with the Occupational Performance Research Group at the University of Chichester.  Faye completed her undergraduate degree at Bangor University in Sport Science where she investigated the effect of exercise duration on in-vivo immune response. She continued her studies at Bangor University, completing an MSc in Applied Sport and Exercise Physiology in 2013. During this time, working as part of the Extremes Research Group, she investigated the effect of repeated muscle damage on the body’s ability to thermoregulate in subsequent heat stress. Since then, Faye has gained applied experience working as a Sport Scientist/Physiologist for companies such as Lucozade Ribena Suntory and TomTom.
