Dr Hannah Jayne Moir

Senior Lecturer in Health & Exercise Prescription

About

My responsibilities include teaching a range of modules, as well as module leadership of Sport & Exercise Psychology and Health & Exercise Physiology, supporting and developing research avenues and supporting departmental administrative activities.

Since being at Kingston University, London, I have extensive undergraduate and postgraduate teaching experience and have developed research avenues in Health and Exercise Sciences.

I am currently module leader on Health & Exercise Physiology, Sport & Exercise Psychology and deliver on a range of modules including Anatomy & Physiology, Extreme Environments & Ergogenic aids, Research Methods and Human Nutrition.

Delivery over several taught programmes, within the Life Science area (BSc in Sport Science, BSc in Sport Science (Coaching), Nutrition (Exercise & Health), BSc Nutrition (Human), BSc Biological Sciences).

Admissions Tutor and Outreach Champion for Sport and Exercise Sciences and STEM Outreach Champion for Life Sciences, Pharmacy and Chemistry.

Theme Leader for the Sport, Exercise, Nutrition and Public Health Research Group under the Faculty of Science Engineering and Computing's Interdisciplinary Hub for the Study of Health and Age-related conditions (IhSHA), Kingston University, London.

Research

Current research interests concern physiology and recovery patterns in ultra-endurance running/ endurance and physical activity/exercise. My main research focuses on physiological impacts inflammatory mediators, immune-metabolic responses to exercise and training, specifically the role of signalling mechanisms and inflammatory mediators in metabolism and skeletal muscle tissue repair and rehabilitation techniques on Muscle Damage and Post-Match Recovery.

I am also interested in the use of exercise prescription in clinical disease management for inflammatory conditions such as type 2 diabetes, cancers and cardiorespiratory diseases.
