Personal profile


Steven completed his PhD: Circulatory limitations to exercise capacity in humans: the impact of heat stress and dehydration on brain and muscle blood flow and metabolism (Brunel University London) in 2015. Dr Trangmar was awarded the Vice-Chancellor's prize for his doctoral research. Dr Trangmar took up a lectureship at St Mary's University before his move to the University of Roehampton in August 2015. Dr Trangmar is an active member of the Sport & Exercise Science Research Group at the University of Roehampton.


PhD in Cardiovascular Physiology (Brunel University London)

MSc in Sport and Exercise Science - Human Performance (Brunel University London)

BSc (Hons) in Sport and Exercise Science (Brunel University London)

Research interests

Dr Trangmar's research focuses on the brain and limb haemodynamic and metabolic adjustments to exhaustive exercise, hyperthermia and exercise-induced dehydration.

Research projects

  • Cerebral blood flow and metabolism during exercise
  • Cardiovascular responses to exercise heat stress & dehydration
  • Mechanisms underpinning blood flow regulation in healthy, aging and diseased populations.

Dr Trangmar is actively recruiting for self-funded PhD students in the areas of cerebral haemodynamics, exhaustive exercise, heat stress & dehydration.
