Daniel Low joined the Division of Sports, Health and Exercise Sciences at Brunel University London in 2019. He is a Brunel University graduate, completing the Sports Science degree in 2004. He then completed an MSc and PhD in Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Exeter, whereby his Masters and Doctorate theses focused on the effect of different playing surfaces and footwear on lower extremity biomechanics of football (soccer) players.
He has a continued research interest in the effects of sports playing surface and footwear on the body, as well as the biomechanical mechanisms behind balance and the effect that exercise, anxiety and ageing has on our ability to remain upright.
During his time as a lecturer at Aberystwyth University, Daniel supervised many undergraduate and post-graduate students including those studying for a PhD; he has also externally and internally examined research students theses. He also regularly reviews for national and international academic journals.
Daniel is a Senior Fellow of the HEA and is accredited by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Science for his pedagogical work; he has also developed a number of degree programmes relating to sport and exercise science and biology.
Daniel is a member of staff in the Division of Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences, Department of Life Sciences and a member of the Centre for Human Performance, Exercise and Rehabilitation
