Background

Professor Ken Nosaka worked in Japan for nearly 20 years before relocating to ECU in April 2004 as an Associate Professor, and was promoted to a full Professor in December 2009. Over the past 18 years, his main responsibilities in the school and university have been to coordinate Exercise and Sports Science Postgraduate and Honours research programs (2007 - 2014), direct the Centre for Exercise and Sports Science Research (2007 - 2012), and lead the Exercise and Sports Science discipline (2015 - present). Since January 2022, he is the PhD coordinator of the school.

Prof Nosaka has published more than 310 peer-reviewed journal articles; his current h-index is 61 (Scopus), and about 80% of his articles are related to “eccentric exercise.” His research has been internationally recognised, and he is considered as a world leader in the area of eccentric exercise research. His other research interests include neuromuscular fatigue, strength and power training, exercise as medicine, thermoregulation, and muscle cramp. He has established collaborations with numerous institutes nationally and internationally, and is actively involved in several international collaborative research projects; more than 70% of his publications include international collaborators. He has supervised 35 PhD and 25 Masters by Research students to completion, and currently supervises 6 PhD and 2 Masters students.
