Super smart and super big, Jackson's our scientific advisor and go-to guy for science-backed information on supplementation, nutrition and its effects on training - and anime. He's a doctoral fellow at the University of Western Australia and has a straightforward approach to nutrition and supplements - you can read his unbiased opinion on our supplements and other topics here.

Hi, I'm Jackson

I am an accredited Sports Nutritionist and Nutrition Scientist currently completing my PhD in Clinical & Sports Nutrition. I have a double major Bachelor's degree in Sports Science and Exercise & Health, and an Honours degree in Exercise Physiology.

I am currently investigating novel nutrition strategies to support optimal body composition in athletes while maintaining performance.

As the Nutrition Science Adviser for Bulk Nutrients, my role is to review the products from a scientific perspective, ensuring that claims are validated so you can feel confident that the products do what they say they do. You can also find me in the Bulk Nutrients Blog quite frequently, discussing certain supplement considerations for athletes in a range of competitive disciplines.
