Amy S. Welch earned her Ph.D. from the Centre for Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Leeds (UK) in 2007, after completing her M.S. and B.S. degrees in sport and exercise science at Sheffield Hallam University (UK). Prior to joining Norwich University in 2019, she held faculty positions at Iowa State University and Northern Vermont University-Johnson.
Early in her career, she explored affective responses to exercise among inexperienced exercisers, with the goal of identifying factors that can predict positive and negative exercise experiences. She has also been involved in developing and testing theory-based interventions designed to increase physical activity behavior. Her current research interests focus on understanding psychophysiological responses to psychological stress, and the use of behavioral strategies to mitigate that stress. For example, her recent scholarship involved using heart rate variability (HRV) as an indicator of autonomic nervous system activity, and the use of aerobic exercise and HRV biofeedback training to reduce stress. Moving forward, Welch is particularly interested in using wearable biometrics to predict the stress, resilience, performance, and well-being of students.
