Dr Benjamin Wall
Associate professor of nutritional physiology


Dr. Benjamin Wall graduated from the University of Birmingham in Sport and Exercise Sciences in 2006 before taking up a PhD position in the School of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Nottingham. Benjamin’s PhD research examined the integration of fat and carbohydrate metabolism during exercise in humans. In 2010, Benjamin moved to Maastricht University in the Netherlands to undertake post-doctoral training under the guidance of Professor Luc van Loon. This research focused on the mechanisms underlying muscle loss under varying conditions (e.g. ageing, inactivity) or muscle gain in response to anabolic stimuli (e.g. exercise training). Moreover, a key emphasis was placed on developing nutritional- and/or exercise-based strategies to attenuate muscle loss or augment muscle hypertrophy in a variety of situations, with an ultimate goal of improving health and/or performance in different populations. Benjamin joined the School of Sport and Health Sciences at the University of Exeter in 2014 as a Lecturer in exercise physiology and nutrition, and his current research focusses on the role of (in)activity and nutrition in health and performance.
