About Dr Richard Clements
Dr Clements completed his PhD titled The Effects of Ageing, Endurance Exercise and Heart Failure on Cardiac Power Output at Liverpool John Moores University in 2006; prior to this he successfully completed an MSc in Exercise Physiology at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2002. After completing his PhD he held a position at University of Chichester for six years before joining the Carnegie Carnegie School of Sport.
He is an experienced sport scientist and has provided support for elite performers from many sports including premiership soccer, rugby union, rugby league and motorsport. He has also worked with clinical populations using exercise as a tool to improve health and long-term prognosis; and has worked with Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) screening individuals for underlying cardiac conditions.
- MSc - Sport & Exercise Science suite
- BSc - Sport & Exercise Science; Sport, Physical Activity & Health, Sports Therapy
- Measurement & Evaluation for Sport & Exercise Physiology
- Applied Sport and Clinical Exercise Physiology
- Foundations of Physiology for Sport & Exercise
Dr Clements' research focuses on the structure and function of the cardiovascular system. In particular he is interested in the role the heart plays and the changes that are induced as a result of ageing, chronic exercise and disease.
