Dr. Nicholas (Corey) Kuzik is a post-doctoral fellow with the Healthy Active Living and Obesity (HALO) group under the supervision of Dr. Mark Tremblay. The goal of his research is to improve childhood development through 24-hour movement behaviours. This requires reaching a better understanding of movement behaviours through studying: measurement, analysis, associations with developmental outcomes, and associations with correlates/determinants. Dr. Kuzik completed his MSc and PhD on the topic of movement behaviours in early years children (0-5 years) under the supervision of Dr. Valerie Carson at the University of Alberta. In his spare time, he enjoys playing guitar, exercising, meditating, as well as exploring the outdoors (e.g., hiking, fishing, foraging) and city (e.g., breweries, coffee shops, urban trails) with his partner Ula and doggo Indy.
