Dr Daniel Bailey is a Senior Lecturer in Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences (physiology) in the Division of Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences, Department of Life Sciences, and a member of the Centre for Human Performance, Exercise and Rehabilitation. Dr Bailey's research investigates the relationship between sedentary behaviour and chronic health conditions, with a particular focus on cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes. This research includes the epidemiology of sedentary behaviour and association with chronic health risks, rigorously controlled laboratory studies examining the benefits of breaking up prolonged sitting time on markers of health, and the development and evaluation of interventions to reduce sedentary behaviour in a wide range of population groups.
Dr Bailey has been awarded a total of 12 research grants from funding bodies and industry partners since 2014 and has published 28 research articles. He has delivered 18 conference presentations and invited talks across the UK and Europe and is a Technical Advisor for the Qatar National Physical Activity Guidelines 2nd edition, which is being released in 2020. Dr Bailey is Associate Editor for Frontiers in Public Health, which recently received its first impact factor of 2.031, he is membership rep for the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences Physical Activity for Health Division, and a member of the scientific committee leadership group for the 8th International Society for Physical Activity and Health (ISPAH) Congress.
Dr Bailey has a wealth of experience teaching physical activity, sedentary behaviour and health topics at undergraduate and postgraduate level and in his previous role as Senior Lecturer in Health, Nutrition and Exercise at the University of Bedfordshire he was leader for the BSc (Hons) Health, Nutrition and Exercise programme.
