Dr Steve Marshall

Assistant Professor

Department: Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation

I am an Assistant Professor in nutrition and exercise physiology at Northumbria University and practitioner registrant on the Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register. I have a BSc in sport and exercise science from Leeds Beckett University and following a few years working in education and the food industry, returned to study my MSc in nutritional science at Northumbria University. I then started up a consultancy business as a personal trainer and nutritionist before being offered a dual role PhD with Sport England and Northumbria University, where I led the nutrition support for Team Northumbria and TASS. During my PhD, I also completed my PGCert in Sport and Exercise Nutrition at Leeds Beckett and has been a member of the SENR ever since. I took my first academic post at Sheffield Hallam in August 2019, where I taught nutrition, exercise physiology, physical activity and wellbeing. I gained my fellowship with the Higher Education Academy and completed my Postgraduate Diploma in Academic Practice during my time at SHU. I am an active researcher in the area of Sport and Exercise nutrition and a committee member in the BDA Sports Nutrition Special Interest Group.
