Dr Ben Maylor
Post doctoral researcher
I am currently a researcher in the Nuffield Department of Population Health and the Big Data Institute at the University of Oxford, working with Aiden Doherty. My research focuses on generating meaningful information from wearable devices such as wrist and thigh accelerometers to better understand the role of 24 hour movement behaviours the prevention and management of chronic diseases.
Prior to joining Oxford in 2024, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Leicester for six years where I worked on developing methods for describing physical behaviours using data from wearable accelerometers and assessing the effectiveness of a large multicomponent intervention in reducing daily sitting in office workers.
