Dr Aamer Sandoo is a Senior Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Science with a special focus on Cardiovascular Physiology. He is an expert in performing non-invasive assessments for examination of vascular health (endothelial function and structure) in different clinical populations and conducts research into the effects of lifestyle interventions for improving vascular health. He has authored over 50 scientific publications including multi-study and multi-centre primary research papers. He has also presented at over 24 National and International Conferences.
Dr Sandoo is passionate about teaching and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. He utilises several teaching innovations to simplify complex physiological topics and improve student understanding in his modules. He has been shortlisted on numerous occasions for ‘Teacher of the Year’ and ‘Project supervisor of the Year’ awards in recent years. He currently teaches on the following modules:
JXH-2055: Sport and Exercise Physiology (Year 2 UG)
JXH3048: Exercise for Clinical Populations (Year 3 UG)
JXH4415: Exercise is Medicine (Postgraduate Taught)

Dr Sandoo currently supervises two PhD students examining topics related to cardiovascular health. His current research interests centre around the biological effects of lifestyle approaches (e.g., exercise, diet, fasting, sleep, smoking etc.) on cardiovascular health. He is particularly interested in understanding the physiological changes to the cardiovascular system in females before, during and after pregnancy as well as other aspects of female health and performance. He encourages students to discuss potential Masters by Research (MRes) and PhD project ideas. He has a relaxed and easy-going supervision style and is open to developing ideas that students may have.
