Senior Research Associate in Exercise Metabolism, Loughborough University

Alice graduated from Loughborough University in 2010 with a BSc in Sport and Exercise Science, and then remained at Loughborough to complete an MSc in Exercise Physiology a year later. Alice continued to study in the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences at Loughborough University where she completed her PhD in 2014 investigating the effect of acute exercise and diet manipulations on postprandial metabolism in young people. Alice commenced a Post-doctoral Research Associate position at Loughborough in March 2015 as part of the Leicester – Loughborough Diet, Lifestyle and Physical Activity Biomedical Research Unit. In April 2017, Alice continued her role as a Research Associate, and since April 2020 as a Senior Research Associate, contributing to projects aligned to the lifestyle theme of the NIHR Leicester Biomedical Research Centre.

Alice’s research is broadly focused on developing understanding of physical activity interactions in health and disease. She is particularly interested in the interaction of exercise with appetite control, energy balance, metabolic health and cardiovascular disease risk.

Alice is currently undertaking research in:
• Exercise, appetite control and energy balance
• Exercise, postprandial metabolism and cardiovascular disease risk
• Individual variability in appetite and postprandial responses to exercise
