Meredith Peddie is a Post Doctoral Fellow in the Department of Human Nutrition, University of Otago. A National Heart Foundation Fellowship funds her position. She has a BPhEd (Hons) in Sports Science, and BSc in Nutrition. Meredith’s passion for the health benefits of physical activity lead to her to complete her PhD with Dr Tracy Perry (and Dr Nancy Rehrer, School of Physical Education, Sport and Exercise Sciences) on the effects of interrupting sedentary behavior with physical activity on postprandial metabolism. Her postdoctoral research extends that of her PhD, further investigating the effects of interrupting sedentary behavior with different patterns of activity, with a specific focus on lipid and carbohydrate metabolism.
