Research Opportunities

We offer research postgraduate, internship and student helper opportunities for students to engage in research process and gain hands-on experience in exercise science-related research areas.  Please contact Dr Parco Siu or Dr Youngwon Kim for details.

Research areas

Our interdisciplinary projects currently focus on the physiological aspects of exercise and its measurement in different populations and lifestyles and how such factors can contribute to improving public health by addressing issues such as physical inactivity, obesity and aging, psychological aspects of exercise behaviours, beneficial characteristics of specific exercise modalities, cognitive mechanisms underlying skill learning and performance, perceptual mechanisms underlying precise human movement, and the influence of the natural/built environment on walkability and other physical activity behaviours.
