Dr Oliver Price
About Dr Oliver Price
Oliver is a Senior Lecturer in Exercise and Respiratory Physiology at Leeds Beckett University.
Oliver was awarded a BSc (Hons.) in Sport and Exercise Science (2009) and Masters of Research in Exercise Physiology (2010) from Nottingham Trent University. Following graduation, Oliver received training in respiratory medicine, exercise testing and pulmonary rehabilitation working as a clinical physiologist in the Department of Specialist Medicine - University Hospital Southampton NHS Trust.
Oliver completed a PhD in exercise and respiratory physiology between 2011-14 (Northumbria University at Newcastle). Oliver’s programme of research evaluated the accuracy of diagnostic methods employed to detect airway dysfunction in athletes and assessed the dissociation between self-report respiratory symptoms and objective physiological testing. Following this achievement, Oliver completed post-doctoral research training in cardiovascular physiology at the International Centre for Circulatory Health (ICCH) - Imperial College London - National Heart and Lung Institute (NHLI), before joining Leeds Beckett University in 2015.
Oliver is a European Respiratory Society (ERS) Fellowship recipient, ERS Task Force Member (exercise and asthma management), and an elected board member for the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) - Allergy, Asthma and Sport Working Group.
Oliver is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and currently contributes to teaching across the undergraduate and postgraduate physiology provision. Alongside teaching and research commitments, Oliver also leads Sport Asthma - an unexplained exertional breathlessness service.
