Ashril graduated in Bachelor of Science and Medical from St Andrews University, Scotland (1992), and Masters in Sport and Exercise Science (Health Science) from Essex University, England (1997). He then pursued a PhD in Sports Science (Biochemistry and Physiology) at the Universty of Essex in 2003. His PhD research was on exercise-induced oxidative stress in erythrocytes. He is currently a senior member of academic staff at the Sports Centre (Exercise Science Unit), University of Malaya. Ashril was a member of National Sports Medicine Institute (UK) from 1996-2006. He is now an active member of Malaysian Association of Sports Medicine (2015 - ) and Malaysian Strength and Conditioning Association (2016 -). He has a broad range of research interests in exercise and sport science as well as clinical studies. Ashril’s research interests primarily focus on metabolic changes and biochemical events under severe endurance exercise. Regulation of circulatory oxidative enzymes and senescence of erythrocytes during prolonged exercise are of special interest, with scope to manipulate protective effects through provision of natural supplements and blood concentrates. Current research areas involved includes association of nutrition, appetite regulation and neuromuscular fatigue, skeletal muscle damage and healing, natural products and performance, and soccer or football related studies. Dr Ashril is also currently engaged in clinical studies involving diabetes and metabolomic changes during exercise, obesity and postural abnormalities amongst school children.    Data Updated: May 26th, 2021,  Publish or Perish h-index = 26, ResearcherID h-index = 18 Total citations: 2561
