Dr Romer holds a Readership in Human and Applied Physiology. After completing undergraduate and postgraduate studies at Brunel, he worked for several years at the British Olympic Medical Centre where he was responsible for the design, management and provision of physiological support services to Olympic Governing Bodies. Subsequently, he completed a PhD at the University of Birmingham and received post-doctoral training at the John Rankin Laboratory of Pulmonary Medicine, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA under the mentorship of Prof. Jerome Dempsey. He joined Brunel in 2004 and became Divisional Lead for Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences in 2014.
