Brianna joined HVMN as Research Lead after completing her Ph.D. in Metabolic Physiology at the University of Oxford. Dr. Stubbs was part of the research group led by Professor Kieran Clarke that invented and conducted a number of animal and human studies relating to ΔG ketone ester, exogenous ketones, and HVMN Ketone.
While she was completing her Ph.D., she was a professional rower with Team Great Britain and a two-time champion at the World Rowing Championships. Since ‘retiring’ Brianna has been ‘taking it easy,’ competing in cycling, running and triathlon. In her triathlon debut in 2017, she placed first overall and qualified for the USA National Championships.
As Research Lead, Brianna provides oversight on the scientific research behind all of the HVMN products. She’s a world expert in ketone metabolism and consults with elite sport, military, clinical and research organizations.
