Personal profile

Professor Frank Marino's research interest is in the way in which humans and other animals interact with the environment and how this affects human performance under a number of conditions. In particular, his research focus on thermoregulation in a range of environmental extremes has lead him to try and further understand the way in which animals hydrate and how the thirst mechanism plays a role in this.

Frank is particularly interested in the evolutionary biology of human performance and resistance to fatigue. His recent research examines the effect of hydration on cognitive performance with the forthcoming book on the evolution of fatigue drawing together many of the theoretical constructs which have been developed over 25 years of research.

Research Interests

  • Thermoregulation during exercise in both health and disease
  • The relationship between hydration and human performance in health and disease states
  • The evolutionary biology of human endurance and thirst
