Personal profile

Biography

The metabolic neuroendocrinology laboratory focuses on understanding how body weight is regulated. We have a particular interest in understanding how energy expenditure occurs within mammals. Our work primarily focuses on thermogenesis, which is a specialised process where the body expends energy in the form of heat. Our work aims to understand how the brain regulates thermogenesis. We have a number of unique and novel models that allow us to characterise the control of body weight, food intake and energy expenditure. The metabolic neuroendocrine group has a particular interest in understanding how the following impact on energy homeostasis and weight control:

  • Gender differences and the effects of sex steroids
  • Stress and the stress hormone cortisol
  • Exercise

Research area keywords
