Personal profile

Research interests

Oliver Peacock is a lecturer in Human Physiology in the Department for Health at the University of Bath. A particular focus of his work has been (1) to explore the role of exercise and nutrition for health and performance, and (2) the use of novel wearable and digital technologies for assessing and promoting physical activity and healthy lifestyle behaviours – the findings of which have been published in scientific papers in leading academic journals.

Following the completion of his PhD in 2010, Oliver undertook six years of post-doctoral training at the University of Bath. This included a three-year position as a performance scientist with UK Sport Innovation – collaborating with multiple sports teams and organisations, including the English Institute of Sport, British Cycling, British Swimming, British Skeleton, Great Britain Hockey and Bath Rugby. Thereafter, Oliver led on the delivery of a three-year Medical Research Council funded project that examined the impact of digital technology for promoting physical activity in patients at risk of chronic disease (MIPACT).

Oliver is collaborating with the Royal United Hospital NHS Trust in Bath, has engaged as a consultant to national and international organisations on training science and the performance characteristics of wearable technology, and contributes widely within the University, as supervisor to doctoral students and as Director of Studies for Health and Exercise Science.
