Research interests

Mark is a lecturer in nutritional physiology in the School of Food Science and Nutrition. His research focuses primarily on the interaction between diet, physical activity and appetite regulation, and the biological and behavioural responses that mediate susceptibility or resistance to weight loss. In particular, he is interested in:

  • The physiological and behavioural responses to dietary and exercise-induced weight loss.
  • The role of body composition and energy expenditure as drivers of appetite and food intake.
  • The interaction between physical activity and appetite regulation.
  • Individual variability in treatment response to weight loss.
