The latest lecture introduces Professor Mark Williams, Professor in the Faculty of Life Sciences and Education.
The philosophy, biology and pathology of Breathing from the Ancient Egyptians to the Space Race of the 20th Century is visited, before Professor Williams begins his own journey into his research on breathing, starting from an exploration of the unique characteristics of water breathers, through the mathematical modelling of the mammalian breathing cycle, to the quantification of breathing patterns in humans, and then finally onto the constraints imposed by age, health and respiratory disease. A review intertwined with personal insights into Professor Williams academic career and times.
