Associate Professor at Blaise Pascal University
David Thivel completed his PhD in the Laboratory of Human Nutrition (INRA) and the Laboratory of Biology of APS Clermont-Ferrand (University Blaise Pascal), studying nutritional adaptations to physical exercise in the teenager thin and obese. He completed a first postdoctoral stay at Columbia University in New York City (USA) where he was able to deepen these energetic and metabolic explorations in response to weight loss induced by bariatric surgery. His second postdoctoral fellowship in Ottawa, Canada, allowed him to continue his work on nutritional responses to physical exercise and sedentary behaviors in children.
Today, David Thivel is Associate Professor at Clermont Auvergne University in Clermont-Ferrand (UFR STAPS) and focuses his research on the interests and impacts of physical activity and sedentary lifestyle on the metabolic profile and nutritional status of children and adolescents, particularly in the context of pediatric obesity.
Mr. Thivel is also Vice president of the European Organization for Pediatric Obesity (ECOG).
