About Philip Williamson

Philip is a current full-time PhD student, focusing on the quantification of individual response to exercise/physical activity interventions. These evaluations explore the statistical methodologies used previously, and focus on the appropriate quantification of individual response. He is also exploring the moderators and mediators responsible for these responses.

In addition, Philip works as a Health and Wellbeing Physiologist for Nuffield Health, delivering one – to – one assessments focused on common health issues and lifestyle change, tailoring personalised programmes to help behaviour change.

Previously, Philip worked in professional sport and served in the British Army.
