Dr Gavin Devereux is an Associate Professor in the Department of Science and Technology, and is the Director of Sport Sciences and Coaching. Gavin is an exercise physiologist, with a research background in understanding how blood pressure is regulated during exercise, as well as the development of special exercise therapies for individuals with high blood pressure.
Gavin provides sport science support to Ipswich Town FC Academy, overseeing all University aspects of player testing and assessment. Gavin is engaged in research with the Sport Science and Medicine team at Ipswich Town, and manages the Ipswich Town FC relationship for the University of Suffolk. This includes the five unique sport science and coaching Integrated Masters degrees, and research programmes in elite football.
Gavin joined the University of Suffolk in 2011, and has previously lectured exercise physiology in Canterbury and Dundee. Gavin's PhD investigated the acute responses and chronic adaptations of cardiovascular physiology following an isometric exercise stimulus. Specifically, the work focused on the underlying mechanisms responsible for blood pressure reductions following training interventions.
Gavin has won University-wide lecturing awards over multiple years, and teaches students on all sport science and coaching degrees at the Ipswich campus. Gavin is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
As well as the applied football sport science work, Gavin continues to work in the field of exercise, cardiovascular health and blood pressure regulation, and is currently collaborating with researchers in Suffolk, Kent and North Carolina, USA.
