He is also an Adjunct Senior Lecturer at the University of Sydney and former Research Scientist and Head of Research Operations for the Athlete Health and Performance Research Centre at Aspetar. His scientific expertise lies in the area of environmental physiology. His integrative approach to research examines the physiological mechanisms that mediate health and performance in adverse environments (heat and altitude). He has worked with both amateur and professional athletes from various disciplines, along with National and International Federations and occupational work groups. He has published several book chapters, over 45 manuscripts, and has presented at international conferences, including the IOC World Conference on the Prevention of Injury and Illness in Sport, and the IOC Advanced Team Physician Course. Dr. Périard is an Associate Editor for Front Physiol and has served as Guest Editor for supplements issues in the Br J Sports Med and the Scan J Sci Med Sport. His research has been recognised by the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology, Exercise and Sports Science Australia, the Physiological Society, and the Society for Tennis Medicine and Science.
