Aaron Sim completed his undergraduate studies with first-class honours in Exercise and Health Science and a PhD in Exercise Physiology from the University of Western Australia. His postgraduate training involved the investigation of the relationship between exercise, appetite control and food consumption. Between his undergraduate and postgraduate studies, he also worked a number of years as an accredited clinical exercise physiologist working with individuals seeking to address metabolic diseases through exercise. Outside of research, he is an avid sports fan and loves a chat regarding anything on sports.
His previous research training involved the investigation of the effects of physical activity on appetite regulation. Specifically, his research examined the acute and longer term influence of high-intensity, intermittent exercise compared with traditional moderate-intensity, continuous exercise on subsequent ad-libitum energy intake, perceptions of appetite and appetite-related blood variables in sedentary and overweight individuals. His wider research interests include investigating the roles of physiological, psychosocial and environmental influences on both energy expenditure and energy intake in the regulation of energy balance and prevention of metabolic disease (in particular obesity and diabetes). He looks forward to contributing to research which has the ability to result in important implications for health.
