Personal profile

Research Interests

My research interests primarily revolve around data analytics, visualization and meta-analyses, with a special interest in physical activity, motor competence, sedentary behaviour and health improvement and management. 


Dr Clark is an early career researcher, with a passion and drive for the advancement of data and statistical analytics. He possesses a PhD in Physical Activity and dataAnalytics, a PGCHE TLHE (Dist.)., a M.Sc by Research (Exercise Physiology) and a B.Sc (1st class) in Sport and Exercise Science. Dr Clark is a Fellow of the Royal Society for Public Health, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Dr Clark's work primarily focuses on the use of novel and appropriate data and statistical analyses in physical activity, behaviour, and nutrition, and is prolific in publishing across these areas. He has a vested interest in exercise and health science, broadly, he also holds advisory and advocacy positions for local government(s), and acts as a native language editor, associate editor, and expert reviewer across numerous internationally revered journals.
