On September 20th at 5PM (London Time), we are bringing together world leading experts for our WE Nutrition Free Webinar.


Following an MSc in Human Movement Sciences at Maastricht University in the Netherlands he completed his PhD in 1997 at the same University studying “Aspects of carbohydrate and fat metabolism during exercise”. In 1997 he moved to the University of Texas at Austin in the USA where he worked as a post-doc studying the effects of diet-exercise interventions. Asker’s research interests have always been the metabolic responses to exercise, especially endurance exercise, the interaction between nutrition and exercise, sports nutrition, gastro-intestinal complaints during exercise, training and overtraining. He has published over 200 peer reviewed publications and book chapters.


Motivated by curiosity, and understanding ways to improve human health and performance. His research group employs a variety of methods to understand human fuel use, including indirect calorimetry, tissue biopsies and stable isotope infusion and ingestion. Member of Department for Health at the University of Bath in 2014 as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Human Physiology before being promoted to Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in 2017 and Reader (Associate Professor) in 2020. Received the Julie Wallace Award 2018 by the Nutrition Society. Serve on the editorial board of The Journal of Physiology Associate Editor for the International Journal of Sport Nutrition & Exercise Metabolism.


Professor of Metabolic Physiology at the University of Bath, where he is Co- Director of the Centre for Nutrition, Exercise & Metabolism. Before joining the University of Bath in 2005, he completed his PhD aged 24 at Loughborough University under the supervision of Professor Clyde Williams. His research takes an integrative approach to the study of human metabolic regulation, thus translating basic molecular mechanisms through to applied whole-body physiology. In particular, James’ work uses randomized controlled trials to test the effects of nutritional interventions on human performance and health outcomes. In recent years his research group has focused on understanding nutrient timing, with experiments involving prolonged fasting, sequential meal tests, nocturnal feeding and circadian biology.
