Alice began her PhD studentship in October 2015 after completing her BSc Sport and Exercise Sciences at the University of Birmingham. Alice’s interests lie in effective physical activity strategies for health and weight management in overweight and inactive females.

Alice’s PhD is currently looking at the acute physiological and psychological responses to non-gym-based high-intensity intermittent exercise. The remainder of her project will focus on appetite and energy balance responses to non-gym-based high-intensity intermittent exercise, specifically in overweight and inactive females.
