After graduating in late 2011 Carl had gained his professional accreditation in strength & conditioning via the United Kingdom Strength and Conditioning Association (UKSCA) and began PhD study in the area of 'the effects of rapid weight loss methods on the physiological, metabolic and hormonal profile of elite international Taekwondo athletes' in late 2012 before gaining a staff position as the sport science support officer for Liverpool John Moores University in early 2013.
