Robert completed his undergraduate degree in Human Movement at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS). Due to his passion for exercise and sport science, Robert then completed his Honours and PhD at UTS.
His research involved the analysis of the biomechanics of sprint acceleration in field sport athletes, and the effects of different speed, strength and power training methodologies.
Including the University of Newcastle, Robert has taught at UTS and the University of Sydney, and regularly lectures for the NSW Department of Sport and Recreation.
Robert's current research interests include analysing the effects of supplementation for muscle strength and hypetrophy, as well as investigating the training practices of field sport athletes.

My research has a strong interdisciplinary focus, as has focused on areas such as strength and conditioning, biomechanics, and exercise physiology. Predminantly, I have analysed speed and acceleration performance in field sport athletes. This research has focused on the biomechanics of sprint technique, and the processes involved in developing strength and power in these athletes.
