Freddy Brown


About Research


After graduating from the University of Oxford with a Masters' Degree in Biochemistry (MBioch), Freddy applied his interest in metabolism to a sporting context.

Subsequently gaining a first class MSc in Sports and Exercise Science from Manchester Metropolitan University, Freddy focused his dissertation on weight-making and fish-oil supplementation in elite wrestlers.

Boxing throughout both degrees and his first job in the supplement industry, Freddy eventually gained the contacts and elite-sport experience necessary to pursue a career as a Performance Nutritionist. He has worked in elite sport since 2010, providing nutritional support to GB Badminton, England Rugby League, British Skeleton and a host of professional combat athletes. 

Freddy joined St Mary's as a PhD student in 2015, and am studying the effects of compression garments as part of sport-specific recovery strategies. 


Freddy's PhD is focused on the use of compression garments, and encompasses a number of areas of physiology - including the specific recovery demands imposed by individual sports, as well as the etiology and progression of muscle damage.

He also contributes to teaching within the School of Health and Applied Science (SHAS) in the areas of research methods and sports physiology.
