Biography

Peter received his PhD from the University of Western Australia in 2009, which investigated exercise-induced mechanisms relevant to iron deficiency in endurance athletes. This work highlighted the potential influence of the iron-regulatory hormone known as hepcidin on iron metabolism in athletes. Subsequently, Peter has worked as an applied sports physiologist in the National Institute Network, at first with the Australian Hockey team (The Kookaburras) leading into the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, and then with the Western Australian Institute of Sport throughout the 4-year period leading into the 2012 London Olympic Games. Currently, Peter works at the University of Western Australia, in the School of Sports Science, where he teaches courses in Sports Physiology and Advanced Exercise Physiology at a 3rd and 4th year level. Additionally, Peter supervises a number of graduate research students in areas such as; iron metabolism in athletes; training methodologies for enhanced athlete adaptation; and the efficacy of various ergogenic aids on athletic performance.
