He is currently the module leader for Intermediate Exercise Physiology (Level 9) and contributes to Foundations of sport and Exercise science (level 7), Introduction to Exercise Physiology (level 8) and Advanced Exercise Physiology (Level 10).

David graduated from his undergraduate B.Sc with Honours in Sport Science at Kingston University in 2011. He subsequently completed his Ph.D in Exercise Physiology at University of the West of Scotland in 2015, investigating the influence of dietary nitrate supplementation and UV-A light exposure on parameters of exercise in healthy adult males. Postdoctoral and research fellow positions followed in the area of cardiovascular and digital health with focus on measurement, physical activity and exercise and their relation to human physiology.

Dr Muggeridge's research at the university is primarily focussed within the Centre for Cardiovascular Health. He is currently leading research into the effects of sunlight exposure and seasonal variation in vascular function. He currently supervises a PhD project exploring the Seasonal Utilisation of Nitric Oxide, funded by the School of Applied Sciences and School of Health and Social Care.
