Dr Danny Taylor - Programme Leader
I teach across a number of related undergraduate and postgraduate modules within the School of Sport and Exercise Science, whilst also serving as the Programme Lead for Sport and Exercise Science. My research interests include pace regulation and optimisation during multi-modal exercise, the combined physiological and perceptual demands of sport, exercise and physical activity, and the efficacy of commonly utilised sports, exercise and/or physical therapy interventions in sporting and/or clinical populations.Academic Staff List

Health and exercise professionals play an important role in tackling the health challenges we face as a society with a range of physical activities.
Sports therapy is a dynamic field and therapists are a crucial part of medical teams at many sports clubs, working alongside other professionals.
Sports coaches inspire teams and individuals to achieve their goals, working across a variety of sports and a range of levels.
At Lincoln, we strive to make sure our student experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. That is why, in response to the issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been prioritising face-to-face teaching sessions for our new and returning students in areas where they are the most valuable, such as seminars, tutorials, workshops, and lab and practical sessions. Additional online opportunities have been introduced where they support learning and have been shown to be successful and popular with our current students.
Safety remains a key focus. We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance makes this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed.
