Summary of Research Interests

Professor Batterham’s work spans the School's rehabilitation, exercise and sport science, and public health themes. His research interests include the influence of physical activity and exercise interventions on a variety of health outcomes in both adults and children.

Alan has a substantial body of work on the influence of body size on human physiology and performance (allometry), involving long-term collaborations with colleagues at Liverpool John Moores and Loughborough Universities. He also collaborates closely with NHS clinical researchers in the region, working on intervention studies in a wide variety of patient groups, including spinal cord stimulation interventions in patients with chronic pain. Alan provides health research methodology support for a wide range of observational studies and clinical trials, including investigator-initiated trials via MedConnect North. 

Current research interests include the potential benefits of high-intensity interval exercise training for both general (public health) and clinical populations. An additional focus is the use of multidimensional physical activity profiles from 24-7 objective monitoring to inform the development and evaluation of interventions and the evolution of physical activity recommendations, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Bath.
