Sports Nutrition and Physical Activity

The research group is a dynamic multi-disciplinary team of researchers devoted to learning, understanding, developing, and advancing in the areas of physical activity, sports nutrition, exercise physiology, and health sciences. Particularly, we seek to understand the associations and mechanisms between physical activity, sedentary behavior and human health (e.g., cardio-metabolic health) in different populations, and examine sports nutrition for exercise performance. We also study the social-environmental influences on children’s physical activity and sedentary behaviors and promote an active lifestyle among children. We aim to conduct high-quality and evidence-based research that makes significant impact on people’s exercise performance and health.
