The Science of Human Performance with Dr. Carwyn Sharp
Show Notes

Carwyn Sharp Ph.D. CSCS, emigrated from England to Australia with his family as a young boy.  Searching for new opportunities, Carwyn’s parents stressed the importance of education as a bridge over poverty and a gateway to an abundant life. Carwyn has followed his passions for sport, movement, and performance—fueling his personal life and extraordinary career. We follow this innovator in the field of human performance on his incredible odyssey from his research in sports nutrition, to working with professional, Olympic, and Paralympic athletes. 

Dr. Sharp holds a doctorate in clinical nutrition from the University of Texas at Galveston. Carwyn was the Exercise Countermeasures project scientist at the NASA Johnson Space Center, Director of Education and Chief Science Officer at the National Strength and Conditioning Association, Senior Sports Physiologist and Data Analyst at the United States Olympic and Paralympic committee in Colorado Springs. Carwyn is currently utilizing his vast education, knowledge, and experience as Head of Human Performance for the AS Roma futbol club. We recently caught up with Carwyn just off the pitch with the squad in Rome. We are excited to host Carwyn on this episode of Intrinsic Drive™
