About Dr Lauren Duckworth

Dr Lauren Duckworth is the Course Director for the Postgraduate Suite of Sports Science courses and a Senior Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Nutrition within the School of Sport.

Lauren completed her PhD research at Leeds Beckett University titled, "Dietary Protein Manipulation in Overweight and Obese Adolescents". Funded by Glaxo Smith Kline and supervised by Professor Roderick King and Professor Paul Gately. Lauren previously completed her BSc. (Hons.) in Sports and Exercise Science at Leeds Beckett University and went on to gain an MSc with Distinction in Exercise Physiology at Loughborough University.

Lauren is an Academic Associate of the Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register, and has a strong commitment to multidisciplinary research and applied teaching within the areas of sports nutrition, exercise and health.

Current Teaching

Lauren leads the MSc in Sport and Exercise Nutrition course and contributes to both undergraduate and postgraduate Sport and Exercise Nutrition and Research Methods modules.

Research Interests

Lauren's research focuses on the effects of nutritional interventions on sport and exercise performance. More specifically, she is interested in the influence of the exercise and feeding on subsequent substrate metabolism during exercise, appetite and post exercise energy consumption. Such interests have led Lauren to both lead and supervise research assessing Exercise intensity and compensatory appetite and feeding behaviour; fuel use and appetite at altitude; Nitrate supplementation at altitude and physiological/cognitive functioning; Dietary behaviours, performance and immune markers of elite rugby players; and Dietary manipulations and age-related sarcopenia.

Further research interests include the effects of fasting and exercise on subsequent appetite, mood and food intake, human metabolism and alternative ergogenic aids.
