Dr Sam Lucas
Research Fellow

I moved to Dunedin in 1997 to start an undergraduate degree (BPhEd) at the University of Otago as it offered the best and most established course. Since completing this degree I've gone on to complete a PhD (School of Physical Education) and began a post-doc fellowship within the Department of Physiology in 2008. Dunedin offers a unique environment to live, study and work in. While there is opportunity to enjoy the student lifestyle, there are many other things that this 'University City' offers, with many beaches and unique wildlife habitats close by, great wilderness terrain to run, walk or mountainbike over (all accessible from the centre of the city!), as well as being a gateway to Central Otago and Fiorldland (e.g., Queenstown and Milford Sound only 3-4 hours drive)... perfect for that weekend escape (if you're not testing!).
