I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Exercise and Nutrition Research Program at the Mary MacKillop Institute for Health Research. I received my doctoral training under Prof. Lawrence Spriet and Prof. Graham Holloway at the University of Guelph, in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. My primary research interests are elucidating the mechanisms controlling skeletal muscle metabolic responses to different exercise and nutrition interventions.

John is currently Head of the Exercise & Nutrition Research Group and Professor of Exercise Metabolism in the Department of Exercise Sciences. He has published over 200 scientific manuscripts (PUBMED), written over 80 articles for technical journals and has authored numerous book chapters for exercise biochemistry and sports medicine texts. He currently sits on the Editorial Boards of many international journals including the American Journal of Physiology (Endocrinology and Metabolism); The Journal of Applied Physiology (U.S.A.); The Journal of Sports Sciences (U.K); Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise (U.S.A.); Sports Medicine (New Zealand; and The International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism (U.S.A.). His laboratories research interests include the interaction of exercise and diet on skeletal muscle metabolism; the molecular bases of exercise training adaptation; the cellular bases underlying exercise-induced improvements in insulin action; and exercise-nutrient interventions for weight loss. He is a consultant for several professional sports teams in Europe and Australia and a regular invited speaker at numerous international conferences every year.

Dr Nolan Hoffman completed his BSc in Biology at Butler University in his hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana in the USA. Nolan earned his PhD in Cellular and Integrative Physiology in 2012 from Indiana University School of Medicine, where he also received postgraduate training in the business of life sciences. He relocated to Australia in 2012 to undertake his postdoctoral research at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and the University of Sydney Charles Perkins Centre. He joined Australian Catholic University in 2016 as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Exercise and Nutrition Research Program at the Mary MacKillop Institute for Health Research where he currently leads the Integrative Physiology Group.
Nolan's research is focused on the regulation of whole body and skeletal muscle metabolism by diet and exercise with a focus on cellular signalling networks and energy sensing mechanisms. His translational research involves a range of approaches including molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, proteomics, systems biology and physiology.

Dr Evelyn Parr is a postdoctoral research fellow with a research interest in reducing obesity through changes in body composition in response to exercise and nutritional interventions.
Evelyn's current research portfolio in the Exercise and Nutrition Research program involves work regarding manipulating the timing and composition of nutritional intake and exercise on the development of type 2 diabetes concomitant with overweight/obesity. Evelyn is currently the assistant supervisor to two PhD students and one Masters student and has previous supervisory experience with Honours students.

Nat Sch Exercise Science
My research interests include thermoregulation responses to exercise in different climatic environments. In particular, the role of the cardiovascular system under thermal stress and the limits to prolonged submaximal exercise in the heat. Other research interests include the effect of dietary manipulations and eccentric muscle damage on exercise performance.
I am a keen cyclist and advocate exercise thoughout the lifespan as a preventative measure against chronic disease arising from a sedentary lifestyle...........not to mention it is also heaps of fun! :)
