Accepting PhD Students

    PhD projects

    Dr. Hill is accepting PhD students and would invite prospective students who have an interest in the following areas; • Interactions between exercise and brain function and health (e.g. cognition, BDNF responses, cerebral blood flow, EEG measures) • Cerebrovascular responses to different exercise parameters • Eccentric resistance exercise and fall-risk among older adults • Assessment of postural control in older adults (e.g. predicting falls, identifying fallers and developing fall prevention interventions)

    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    Dr Matt Hill is an Assistant Professor in Exercise Physiology working with the Centre for Sport, Exercise and Life Sciences (CSELS). His research priorities can be broadly allocated to the following themes: the identification of physiological risk factors for falls (fatigue) and the development and evaluation of prevention strategies (exercise training) to reduce the occurrence and impact of falls. His current investigations are focused on understanding the links between exercise and the brain, including the role of exercise in improving cognitive abilities, and the cerebrovascular response in both acute and chronic settings. Another key aspect of his research focuses on the analysis of neuromuscular mechanisms of acute and chronic-induced stresses induced by eccentric exercise among older adults.


    Dr. Matt Hill is an Assistant Professor at Coventry University. He teaches across several Exercise Physiology related modules at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Matt earned his doctoral degree at Coventry University in 2015, focussing on the effects of acute and chronic-induced exercise stresses on fall-risk among older adults. Since commencing his role at Coventry University in 2017, Dr. Hill’s research seeks to further understand the interaction between exercise and fall-risk, with a specific emphasis on postural control and cognitive function among older adults.
