New Head of School of Exercise and Health Sciences
Wednesday, 21 December 2011
I am pleased to announce that the new Head of School of Exercise and Health Sciences is Associate Professor Annette Raynor, who will take up the position from 1 January 2012.
Professor Raynor brings considerable management and leadership experience from the School of Health Sciences at the University of South Australia, where she was Associate Head (Academic) and had recently completed a nine month period as Acting Head of School.
Prior to that, Professor Raynor spent six years working at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore as a lecturer in physical Education and will continue engagement with Singapore as part of the School’s internationalisation agenda.
Professor Raynor is originally from Perth and studied at UWA, completing her PhD in 1994 in the area of exercise science with a specific interest in motor learning and control.
She has extensive teaching experience in this area and her research interests have been broad, recently working collaboratively with colleagues from other allied health professions and industry partners such as Diabetes SA, Domiciliary Care SA, Disability SA, Netball Australia and the Australian Institute of Sport to answer applied research questions.
It is my pleasure to welcome Annette to her new role at ECU. Her leadership and experience with allied health will be a great benefit to ECU’s School of Exercise and Health Sciences.
Professor Kerry O. Cox
