Professor Neil King is the Director of Research Training in the Faculty of Health at Queensland University of Technology. He is also an active researcher in the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation and the School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences. He has achieved an international reputation in obesity research based on developing research themes, ‘resistance to lose weight’ and ‘susceptibility to gain weight’, with a focus on appetite regulation.
Appetite, Diet, Exercise, Food preference, Obesity, Weight Management
Professor King is nationally and internationally recognised as a researcher in Physical Activity, Appetite Control and Energy Balance. He has published over 120 peer-reviewed journal articles, over 150 peer-reviewed conference abstracts and 20 book chapters. He has an h-index of 36. His publications have been cited more than 360 times/year. More than 75% of his publications are in journals ranked in the top quartile. His research has advanced the understanding of the interaction between exercise, satiety and appetite regulation, and in particular, the role of exercise in weight management.
PhD and Masters Research Supervision: Professor King has successfully supervised 16 Higher Degree Research students to completion. He is interested in supervising projects that lead to innovative and effective weight loss strategies. Examples include, exercise and dietary interventions, serious games technologies and determining psychological factors associated with susceptibility to weight gain and resistance to weight loss. Desirable qualifications include graduates with degrees in Nutrition, Dietetics, Sports Science and Human Movements. Please visit the START database (http://start.health.qut.edu.au/). If you are interested in doing a PhD or Research Masters with Professor King, please send him an email with a copy of your cv and a brief (max. 500 words) research proposal.
