Hannah Campbell


I relocated to Leeds from Australia in 2022 to take on a teaching and scholarship position in the School of Biomedical Science. 

I am a Clinical Exercise Physiologist, obtaining an Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA) accredited undergradute degree in Australia. I have worked with many patients including cardiometabolic, mental health and musculoskeletal. I am an advocate for exercise for prevention and medicine for clinical disease and longevity.

I completed my PhD in Heart Failure. My original research was in diastolic echocardiography exercise stress testing for patients with indetermined diagnoses or early stage disease. The COVID-19 pandemic forced a change in focus leading to my PhD submission in Chronotropy in Heart Failure. 

Throughout my doctorate I took on academic teaching roles across plant physiology, molecular and cellular biology, nursing and medicine. I have developed an interest in how we structure degrees and teach complex physiological concepts through active learning and digital technologies and the important of student feedback.

I am also interested in the application of sports and exercise science and physiology on the global stage and its impact on the challenges facing the global population.
