Personal profile

Research interests

Dr Chowdhury undertook both his undergraduate degree in Sport, Health and Exercise Science (1st class) and PhD studies within the Department for Health at the University of Bath and took up his current role in September 2016. He is currently a teaching fellow contributing to undergraduate and postgraduate programmes within the Department for Health.

He was previously involved in the MRC funded Mi-PACT project, investigating the effects of technology enabled physical activity profiling in adults at risk of chronic disease. Prior to this he was involved in the BBSRC funded “Bath Breakfast Project” and completed his thesis entitled “Extended morning fasting, energy balance and human health” under the supervision of Dr James Betts and Prof Dylan Thompson in 2015. Through undertaking his current work and previous research, he has expertise in the measurement of physical activity and energy balance. Dr Chowdhury has conducted laboratory based and free-living intervention studies investigating the interactions between components of energy balance. He has also investigated basic mechanisms of appetite regulation in a variety of populations.

Dr Chowdhury has previously been employed in applied human science in industry for QinetiQ and as a teaching fellow on the Sport, Health and Exercise science undergraduate degree, during which he taught both basic and applied physiology and obtained an Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.

His current research interests include physical activity interventions, the use of commercial activity monitors for the measurement of physical activity behaviours and the effects of manipulated feeding patterns upon health.
