Clare Eglin, BSc and PhD in physiology – UK

Clare undertook her BSc and PhD in physiology at the University of Sheffield. In 1994 she joined Prof Michael Tipton as a post-doc at Surrey University and then moved to the University of Portsmouth in 1998 where she is now a principal lecturer in the Extreme Environments Laboratory. Over the last 25 years, Clare has researched and taught in the area of environmental physiology with a particular interest in survival in the sea and drowning prevention. Her research has included investigations into factors affecting the cold shock response and how this can be reduced through behavioural (habituation and floating) and technological (emergency underwater breathing apparatus and immersion suits) interventions as well as the mechanisms involved in swim failure in cold water.
