Benjamin Wall obtained his BSc from the University of Birmingham and his PhD from the University of Nottingham Medical School, where his thesis addressed the integration of fat and carbohydrate metabolism during exercise. Thereafter, Benjamin worked as a post-doctoral fellow at Maastricht University Medical Centre where he studied the nutritional regulation of muscle mass in health and disease. Benjamin is currently an Associate Professor of Nutritional Physiology in the School of Sport and Health Sciences at the University of Exeter, where his general research interests concern how nutrition and physical (in)activity influence metabolic health and performance in a variety of populations. Benjamin!s current research projects are focussed on how inactivity and ageing alters the capacity of muscle tissue to utilise nutrients, and how this can inform on optimising nutritional requirements for injured athletes and in support of healthy ageing. A particular interest is placed on developing an evidence base around novel and sustainable dietary protein sources in various populations.
