Dr James Fell began his academic career studying physical education in Ballarat before pursuing research in sports science at Griffith University. He has lectured at Griffith University, Central Queensland University and at the University of Tasmania since 2005. In 2006/7 he initiated the Bachelor of Exercise Science Degree at the University of Tasmania and has been the course coordinator since then. He has been a board member of the Tasmanian Branch of Exercise & Sports Science Australia since inception in 2008 and serves on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Fitness Research.
Dr Fell is the unit coordinator for the units Exercise Physiology and Nutrition (CXA237), Scientific Principles of Strength and Conditioning (CXA304), Assessment and Prescription for Strength and Conditioning (CXA314), Injury Prevention and Management (CXA402), and Practicum in Exercise Science 1(CXA404). He also teaches in the units Exercise Assessment and Prescription (CXA308), Directed Study in Exercise Science (CXA403) and Clinical Exercise Physiology (CXA438). He contributes to the multi-member teaching teams that provide lectures, tutorials and practical classes in Anatomy, Physiology and Bioscience for undergraduate exercise science, biomedical science, nursing, human movement and health science students.
Although Dr Fell has a broad range of research interests, his passion lies in improving athletic performance through training and dietary modulation. Specifically, he works within the 'Exercise' and 'SPORT' groups in the School of Human Life Sciences. Present topics of particular interest include the growing area of multisport adventure racing and in particular how compression clothing, gluten free diets and nutrition for recovery might impact upon performance. He currently has research links with the Tasmanian Institute of Sport, Menzies Research Institute, German Sports University (Cologne), and the Australian Institute of Sport.
