About James Broatch

Dr Broatch currently holds a joint appointment as Research Fellow within the Institute for Health and Sport (iHeS) and the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS.

James received his PhD from Victoria University where he examined the effects of post-exercise cold-water immersion on skeletal muscle adaptations to exercise.

His current role is to conduct applied and mechanistic research to evaluate the effects of compression garments on recovery and exercise performance.
