Biography

My research investigates the effects of exercise and diet on the prevention and management of vascular and metabolic diseases from the molecular to the whole-body level.

My research interests include:

  • the interactions between physical activity, energy balance, adiposity and disease risk
  • the mechanisms by which exercise regulates insulin sensitivity
  • the potential of community organisations, such as professional sports clubs (e.g. football and rugby clubs) and workplaces to deliver health behaviour change interventions that are attractive and acceptable to at-risk groups
  • increasing cycling levels in the UK (working with British Cycling and HSBC UK)
  • why certain population groups (particularly South Asians) appear to be particularly susceptible to the adverse effects of a `Westernised' lifestyle and how lifestyle interventions can modulate this excess risk
