For the last two decades, Dr. Volek has performed cutting edge research on how humans adapt to diets restricted in carbohydrates with a dual focus on clinical and performance applications of nutritional ketosis. His scholarly work includes more than 300 peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts and five books, including a New York Times Best Seller, and he has provided more than 200 lectures at scientific and industry conferences around the world. Dr. Volek is the author of The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living and The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance, two foundational books on low carb nutrition science and nutritional ketosis that he wrote with Stephen Phinney, MD, Ph.D.

Dr. Volek is a registered dietitian and professor in the Department of Human Sciences at The Ohio State University. His team at OSU studies the role of nutritional ketosis on cardio-metabolic status, ectopic fat accumulation in various tissues (liver, muscle, heart), tumor metabolism and health outcomes in women with advanced breast cancer, and human physical and cognitive capabilities in military personnel.

Dr. Volek has a Bachelor of Science in dietetics from Michigan State University, and a Master of Science in exercise physiology and Doctorate in kinesiology and nutrition from Pennsylvania State University.
