About Research



In 2021, George completed a Bachelor of Science (BSc) undergraduate degree in Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Surrey, before completing a Master of Science (MSc) postgraduate degree in Applied Sport and Exercise Physiology, at St Mary's University, in 2022. Currently, George is undertaking research, here at St Mary's University, as part of his Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree, where he is investigating the potential ergogenic effects of caffeine on skill.

Aside from academia, George has applied experience as a Strength and Conditioning Coach, where he has provided support to a number of sports including basketball, netball, and fencing. Currently, George is working as a Strength and Conditioning Coach for elite-level middle and long-distance runners, at the St Mary's Endurance Performance Centre, as well as supporting international marathon runners as part of the England Athletics Talent Hub. Alongside his involvement in athletics, George is actively coaching on British Fencing's Athlete Development Programme, where he aids fencers aiming for 2024 and 2028 Olympic qualification.

George is currently on the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences supervised experienced programme, where he aims to gain accreditation and chartered scientist status. He also wants to develop as an endurance athletics coach, so is presently gaining coaching qualifications as part of the United Kingdom/England Athletics coaching pathway.

Outside of education and work, George is an avid middle/long-distance runner and an international-level fencer.
