Prior to beginning his PhD, Peter has been the team lead Physiotherapist for the Department of Medicine for the Elderly of Addenbrooke’s Hospital since January 2015. Peter studied Physiotherapy at the University of East Anglia, and completed an MSc in Clinical Research at the University of Hertfordshire.
Peter is interested in hospital associated changes in skeletal muscle and functional decline in older patients, and how physiotherapy and exercise interventions may prevent negative changes.
