Research interests

Dr. Patricia Doyle-Baker, Dr.PH/PhD, does research that involves clinical exercise physiology, epidemiology and sport science. These three fields of study come together in her role as a doctor of Public Health. The Doyle-Baker research group uses blood markers (hormones) metabolic parameters, (bone mineral density, bone content, lean body and fat free mass) and physiological profiles (exercise and activity based), to provide evidence towards population based outcomes. The lab's collaborations spread across several disciplines including: medicine, health promotion, environmental design, and athletic populations. These rich experiences provide the lab with a wealth of information which allows them to translate knowledge (which they are very passionate about) and impact audiences through speaking and writing.

Her areas of research are within these research themes in the Faculty of Kinesiology:

- Movement Science and Musculoskeletal Health

- Injury Prevention, Sport Medicine and Rehabilitation

- Exercise Physiology and Nutrition in Health and Sport

PK (Tish) Doyle-Baker CV

Doyle-Baker's career framework is founded in public health, defined as everything outside the health care system, and how society functions. Her academic appointments model this framework with positions in the Faculties of Kinesiology and Environmental Design (adjunct-EVDS), as an affiliate and part of the Faculty of the Population Health Intervention Research Centre – within the Faculty of Medicine, as a collaborator with the Sport Injury Research Prevention Centre and as a member of the Alberta Children's Hospital Research Institute for Child and Maternal Health.

Her work in the academy as well as in the community reflects her innate ability to engage and speak with diverse populations on health and educational issues particularly related to the broad domain of Health Literacy in Canadian society. Two of her strongest attributes are knowledge transfer in public health with a similar expertise in research translation. She is entering her 25th year in academia and she has a cadre of conventional and creative skill sets with novel expertise in the areas of clinical skills, education, research, teaching and speaking. She is acutely aware, that partnerships outside the university setting, and collaborations between and across universities provide the foundation for enhancing the intellectual life of university faculty, students and staff. Therefore she volunteers and provides support to the greater community through working with organizations outside academia. In summary, she has a solid reputation, an encompassing familiarity with academia and adult learners, a strong belief in advocacy and a passion for societal investment, a leadership style that embraces collaboration and participation and last but not least a spirit of innovation and creativity.
