Dr Jonathan Bird joined the University of Exeter in 2019. He is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Digital Innovation in the Business School.

Jonathan completed his PhD in Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences at Brunel University London in 2019. Working under the guidance of Professor Costas Karageorghis, his programme of research examined the effects of immersive technology (e.g., virtual reality) within an exercise context.

Jonathan has presented his work at scientific conferences and has published in journals such as the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports and Physiology & Behavior. Jonathan has a strong interest in applied sport psychology and is accredited as a Sport and Exercise Scientist with the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences. He is also a chartered member of the UK’s Science Council and has worked as a consultant with athletes from a wide variety of sports.
