Prof. Neil Eves

Current Program

John is a Clinical Exercise Physiologist and has worked in numerous research, sport science, teaching, coaching and clinical practice positions. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Teaching at the University of British Columbia – Okanagan, within the Educational Leadership stream, where he enjoys sharing his passion for learning, and exercise science, alongside bad puns and dad jokes. Outside of the classroom and lab, John has enjoyed participating in, cheering on and coaching a wide variety of sporting and adventure pursuits. John’s future research aspirations include exploring the autonomic dysfunction that is associated with chronic conditions (e.g. cardiovascular disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, cancer) and using a precision-exercise approach to reduce the ‘stress’ imparted by the underlying imbalance.
