Heather Bowles, PhD, is a Physical Activity Epidemiologist with the Risk Factor Monitoring and Methods Branch in the Applied Research Program. Before coming to the National Cancer Institute, Dr. Bowles held a research academic appointment in Australia at the Centre for Physical Activity and Health, University of Sydney. Her research has ranged in scope from behavioral interventions to assessing particulate matter exposure during physically active transportation, but the underlying theme of her work has been to understand how, why and where people do physical activity. Dr. Bowles earned her PhD in Epidemiology from the University of South Carolina and her MS in Kinesiology from the University of North Texas.
