Biographical details

Emmanuel is an Associate Professor of Exercise, Health and Physical Activity Sport Sciences in the Faculty of Health Science and the Charles Perkins Centre. He studied Exercise and Sport Sciences at Arisotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece) and between 1997 and 2002 he completed an MSc on Exercise and Health and a PhD on Physical Activity and Childhood Obesity at University of Bristol (UK). He joined University College London in 2002 where he worked on large-scale nationwide epidemiological physical activity surveillance studies until 2006. In 2007-09 he was involved in the development of the UK physical activity and sedentary behaviour public health recommendations and has advised numerous large population studies and organisations (including the English Department of Health, Sport England, the UK Office for National Statistics) on physical activity measurement development, design, implementation and data analysis and interpretation. In 2007 and 2010 he was awarded two consecutive research Career Development Fellowships by the National Institute for Health Research (UK). In 2010 he founded UCL- PARG (University College London Physical Activity Research Group) which he led until early 2014. Between January and December 2013 he was also a part-time Associate Professor at the Prevention Research Collaboration of the University of Sydney.
In addition to publishing regularly in the top physical activity, exercise medicine, and preventive medicine journals, he has published numerous articles in prestigious general medical, cardiology, epidemiology, and multi-disciplinary journals including the British Medical Journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Circulation, Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Archives of Internal Medicine/JAMA Internal Medicine, Diabetes Care, American Journal of Epidemiology, International Journal of Epidemiology, and Pediatrics.
In 2009 he was awarded the Ralph S. Paffenbarger Jr. Award (Finland), in 2012 the Endocrine Society’s International Award for Publishing Excellence (USA), and in 2012 the Royal College of Psychiatrists Research Prize (Scotland).

Research interests

Several areas that are thematically relevant to the broader(physical and mental)health impact of physical activity and sedentary behaviourand the factors that determine these behaviours.Specific researchinterests include the cardiometabolic consequences of inactivity and sitting, the direct and substitution effects of time-dependent behaviours (e.g. sleep, sitting, physical activity),interactions ofphysical activity with other health behaviours (e.g. alcohol intake and sleep) in terms of cardiometabolic health; interventions in the office-based workplace to reduce sitting; the cardiometabolic and musculoskeletal aspects of alternating sitting and standing at work; the socio-economic determinants of physical activity and sedentary behaviour; the health-promoting effects of yoga; and measurement of physical activity and sedentary behaviour.

Teaching and supervision

Associate Professor Stamatakis is currently teaching Physical Activity Epidemiology and exercise-related aspects of Growth, Development and Aging. He is a research supervisor of several PhD students on international projects relating to physical activity, sedentary behaviour and obesity in adolescents in Kuwait, novel physical activity interventions in school settings, and the influence of physical activity on mental health in older adults.

Current PhD project opportunities include:
  • Understanding the physiological responses to prolonged sitting and the role ofexercise as a moderator of these responses
  • The interplay between sleeping, sitting, and physical activity on cardiometabolic health and premature mortality risk
  • Interactions between exercise/physical activity and alcohol intake in terms of cardiovascular risk markers
  • The health benefits of alternating sitting and standing in the office-based environment
  • The interplay between sleeping,sedentary behaviour, physical activity/exercise behaviours
  • Pet ownership as a physical activity and cardiometabolic health intervention
  • The effects ofYoga on cardiometabolic health and psychological wellbeing

Current projects

Current Projects
Associate Professor Stamatakis’ research, wherever possible and appropriate, encourages the use of multidisciplinary approaches and, in particular, the combination of epidemiological and controlled designs to address a given research question. Current projects include:
  • The role of physical activity and exercise for mitigation of the health risks associated with excessive sitting
  • The direct and replacement effects of sleeping, sitting, and physical activity on cardiometabolic health and premature mortality risk
  • The role of physical activity and exercise as moderators of the physiological responses to alcohol intake
  • The health benefits of alternating sitting and standing in the office-based environment
  • How sedentary behaviour, physical activity and exercise influence and are being influenced by sleeping behaviours
  • The potential of pet ownership for improving physical activity patterns, cardiometabolic risk markers, and psychosocial wellbeing
  • Yoga practice in relation to cardiometabolic health and psychological wellbeing
