Overview

The ability to improve human movement performance in athletic, rehabilitation, ageing and other populations is contingent of having a detailed understanding of the human body and how it adapts to exercise training and detraining. Researchers in the Centre for Exercise and Sports Science Research (CESSR) conduct high-impact scientific research and provide postgraduates with training and supervision in the area of exercise and sports science with the aim of improving our understanding of human movement.

We use a multi-mode approach to studying human athletic performance which uses techniques in the fields of physiology, biomechanics, psychology, motor control and learning, neurophysiology, biochemistry, medical imaging, and others, to improve this understanding. We specifically focus on translating scientific advances into the real-world setting.

Research themes

Major areas of research specialisation within the Centre include:

  • Strength and conditioning;
  • Physiology of Sports Performance;
  • Psychology of Sports and Exercise; and
  • Sports Biomechanics.
