Biographical details

Nathan's primary research concerns the physiological consequences of lifestyle change (exercise and diet) in obesity and metabolic disease.

Nathan's research is currently supported by the Ramaciotti Foundation and Blackmores Australia.

Within the Faculty of Health Sciences, Nathan teaches undergraduate exercise science, clinical exercise physiology and postgraduate exercise physiology. His teaching philosophy focuses the development of practical skill mastery for exercise physiology and the promotion of evidence-based clinical practice.

Research interests

Nathan is a member of the Exercise Physiology and Nutrition research team:

http://sydney.edu.au/health-sciences/research/exercise-physiology/index.shtml

Exercise and diet; physiology of exercise; physical activity

Teaching and supervision

Nathan's teaching focuses on the physiology of exercise. Specifically, his teaching centres on the acute and adaptive responses to physical activity with a particular emphasis on the nexus between theoretical understanding and the development of practical competency for the Exercise Physiologist.Current research projects are undertaken by 5 PhD students and Honours candidates for whom Nathan is a supervisor.
