Millen James Theophilus


Pronouns: He/him
  • MSCA Network Fellow (Doctoral Candidate)

Millen James Theophilus graduated with a BSc in Exercise and Sport Sciences from Manipal Academy of Higher Education, India, in 2022. Subsequently, Millen moved to the United Kingdom and graduated with distinction from Loughborough University with an MSc in Sport Biomechanics in 2023. 

In 2024, he was appointed as a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Network Fellow (Doctoral Candidate) at Loughborough University in the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences. 

Millen’s main sporting interest is basketball, and he competed at the National level in the Youth and Junior categories in India before transitioning to Loughborough. 

Millen’s research interest includes wearable sensors and accelerometric profiling of movement behaviours. More specifically, Millen is interested in developing and validating sophisticated physical activity measurement algorithms to advance our understanding of the link between movement behaviours and health. 

Millen is a member of the Learning Network for Advanced Behavioural Data Analysis (LABDA), a collaborative initiative supported by the European Union through the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) doctoral network project under Horizon Europe. This consortium comprises 13 PhD fellows spanning across 5 countries. Their collective objective is the creation of an open-source toolbox tailored for the sophisticated analysis of movement behaviours captured by wearable sensors.
