Personal information

Dr Nicola Gerrett is an exercise physiologist specialising in thermoregulation during heat exposure. She obtained her PhD at Loughborough University (UK) focusing on the influence of sweat on thermal perceptions during exercise in the heat. This was an industry co-funded PhD with Decathlon, Oxylane Research in France. Following her PhD, Nicola worked at the University or Worcester (UK) as a lecturer, teaching undergraduate and graduate students research methods and exercise physiology modules. She conducted research here investigating pre-cooling strategies to help attenuate performance losses whilst exercising in the heat.

Nicola successfully obtained two JSPS research grants to conduct research into sweat gland function and adaptation to age, heat acclimation and exercise training at Kobe University in Japan. She continues this line of research alongside strategies to cope with exercise in the heat at her current position at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
