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.
