Temperature Modulation Of Skin Tolerance To Applied Mechanical Loading And Shear


Lead researcher

Dr Davide Filingeri BSc, MSc, PGCAP, PhD

Associate Professor

Research interests

  • Davide’s original research programme investigates:
  • i) the biophysical and physiological mechanisms that allow humans to sense changes in the temperature and wetness of their skin.
  • ii) the role of these mechanisms in body temperature regulation and the initiation of thermal behaviours.
