About Danny Taylor
Having completed my undergraduate degree in Sport & Exercise Science here at the University of Lincoln in 2007, I began a part-time PhD whilst also working in a number of roles within the School of Sport & Exercise Science, including Sports Science Technician, Visiting Lecturer, and Instructor in Sport (Physical Sciences). Following the award of my PhD in June 2015 (which examined ‘The perceptual basis of pacing during sprint-distance triathlon’) I was appointed as a Lecturer in Sport Physiology within the School and have since taken on the role of Programme Lead for the BSc (Hons) Sport & Exercise Science degree. My research interests include pace regulation and optimisation during multi-modal exercise, the combined physiological and perceptual demands of sport, exercise and physical activity, the use of mobile technology to monitor physiological status during exercise, and the efficacy of commonly utilised sports/exercise/physical therapy interventions. As such, I have continued to publish my research across a range of peer-reviewed journals and international conferences (see ‘Research’ tab for further detail).
Programme leader for the BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science. School Ethics Chair & Representative on the College of Social Sciences Ethics Committee. Module leader for Fundamentals of Human Physiology on the BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science degree, Fitness Testing & Training on the BSc (Hons) Sport Development & Coaching and BSc (Hons) Physical Education & Sport degrees, and Functional Anatomy and Human Movement on the MSc Sports Therapy. First and second supervisor on undergraduate and taught postgraduate degree dissertations across the school.

I have provided physiological support to athletes from a variety of sports, including triathlon, kayak/canoe, and professional motor racing, establishing focused physiological and performance feedback based on sport-specific assessments and athlete goals. I also continue to deliver practical sports science workshops to primary school, secondary school and college/FE groups which aim to help enhance student understanding of physiological assessments and associated/underlying theory.
