Professor Exercise Physiology and Biochemistry, University of Western Australia

Professor Fournier is an exercise biochemist/physiologist who received his PhD from Laval University, Canada, before joining the School of Sport Science, Exercise and Health at the University of Western Australia.

Professor Fournier specializes in the field of bioenergetics in exercise, health and disease. This discipline is concerned with not only the regulation of energy utilization, intake and storage, but also with the mechanisms whereby these processes are affected by exercise, nutrition, and metabolic disorders such as obesity and diabetes.

The success of the research programmes initiated by Professor Fournier is best illustrated by the many national competitive grants he has been awarded since the start of his career, his published work in high impact journals, and the many postgraduate students he has supervised.
