About this Event

Please note the final start time for this seminar is 17:15.

BIOGRAPHY

Dr Wallis’s basic training was in Sport and Exercise Sciences (Birmingham) and Exercise Physiology (Loughborough). Initially, he worked as a Sport Science practitioner delivering physiology support for high performance athletes (Human Performance Unit, University of Birmingham, 2001-2002) before commencing his PhD at Birmingham in the area of Exercise Metabolism and Nutrition. His doctoral studies, conducted under the direction of leading sports nutritionist Professor Asker Jeukendrup, focused on ‘Exercise Metabolism and Carbohydrate Ingestion in Men and Women’. Aspects of this research have made significant contributions to current Sports Nutrition guidelines for endurance athletes and impacted on nutritional product development in the sport nutrition manufacturing industry.

Dr Wallis conducted post-doctoral studies in the laboratory of world-leading exercise physiologist Professor George Brooks in Department of Integrative Biology at the University of California, Berkeley. There, he researched in a broad range of areas related to whole-body and organ specific metabolic regulation in health and disease and during this time was awarded a Senior Research Training Fellowship from the American Lung Association.

Before joining the School, Dr Wallis worked as a Principal New Product Research Scientist at GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Nutrition based in the UK (2008-2011). In this role he provided strategic scientific input, technical oversight and undertook human volunteer research study management in a scientific program developing innovative new product and claims opportunities for GSK Nutrition, with a particular emphasis on sport and exercise science/nutrition.

Dr Wallis joined the School of Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Birmingham in November 2011. In this role he conducts research and teaching in the area of exercise metabolism and nutrition in the context of health and sporting performance.
