Associate Lecturer Yuri Kriel is a teaching and research staff member within the School of Health and Sports Sciences. His areas of research interest and teaching include cardiorespiratory and metabolic health, cardiac pathophysiology, clinical cardiopulmonary exercise testing and the role that physical activity plays in the treatment and prevention of disease processes. He is currently completing his doctoral degree, investigating oxygen distribution and utilisation at the systemic and tissue level, in responses to physical exercise in sedentary individuals. He is a member of the research Cluster for Health Improvement (CHI).
Yuri is an accredited exercise physiologist (AEP) and has worked clinically as an AEP within the greater Brisbane area. Yuri has also worked in the United Kingdom as a clinical physiologist in the areas of cardiopulmonary, cardiac and respiratory diagnostics and as a Biokineticist in South Africa, bringing a decade and a half of varied clinical expertise to his teaching and research areas.
Yuri’s previous postgraduate study at the University of Cape Town, South Africa included investigation of the central governor theories of fatigue and the use of teleoanticipation in the generation of pacing strategies.
