Rob Wilson earned his Doctorate in Philosophy from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee in Health Sciences, where he specialized in Sport and Exercise Physiology in August of 2012. He also received his Master of Science from UW-M in May of 2005, where he had a dual specialization in Exercise Physiology and Exercise and Sport Psychology. He is currently an instructor at Montana State University in the Health and Human Performance program in the College of Education, Health and Human Development. He teaches courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The course topics include training program design for athletes and exercisers, field-based performance testing, exercise physiology, small group student centered research and research methods.
Dr. Wilson played one season of collegiate soccer at Marietta College before sustaining career ending injuries. He then played rugby at Marietta College and later at Marquette University. He has over two decades of soccer coaching experience from the youth to the collegiate level. His research area got its genesis during these years of playing and coaching. This research focuses on developing a better understanding of the physiological load experienced by athletes during practices and competitions. The long-term goal of this research is to develop robust models which will help reduce the occurrence of under-performance and overtraining.
