Dr Ulric Abonie

Assistant Professor

Department: Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation

I am a physiotherapist with a clinical background in cardiorespiratory rehabilitation.  I have a strong passion for learning, teaching and research. My research interests are in the areas of self-management and physical activity behaviour in chronic conditions, and cardiorespiratory rehabilitation. I currently teach on the BSc (Hons) and MSc (Pre Registration) Physiotherapy programmes.
