He leads the Skeletal Muscle and Training Research Group at Victoria University, focusing on how diet, exercise and genes interact to regulate skeletal muscle adaptations; he translates this into recommendations for individualised exercise prescriptions to improve health and human performance. He has held numerous leadership positions, including being the youngest-ever president of Exercise & Sport Science Australia (ESSA), when he was lead author on a submission to the Productivity Commission that led to the inclusion of Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) in Medicare-Plus.
