Research

Joe Layden gained a PhD in Applied Physiology from the Faculty of Biomedical Sciences, University of Strathclyde in 2003. He has worked as a Higher Scientific officer for the UK Ministry of Defence and as a Research Scientist for the Netherlands National Research Institution (TN0). Within these organisations his primary role has been to provide advice and/or undertake scientific study to assess injury risk and to ensure the functional health, wellbeing and optimal performance of working personnel.

Sample projects include:

  • Assessment of workload on fatigue and injury risk in military personnel
  • Quantification of thermal strain in Royal Netherlands Air Force Fire Fighting Instructors
  • Evaluation of the adequacy of nutrition provision for UK MoD personnel
  • Assessment of clothing ensembles impact on thermal strain and work capacity Development and evaluation of coping strategies for personnel operating in thermal extreme
