Greig Watson is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Health Science. He is an Exercise Scientist and ESSA Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP). He is interested in improving people’s physical performance and physical activity levels.

Biography

As a citizen of the UK, and after spending seven years in post-graduate study in the USA, Greig arrived in Australia in 2006 to begin a Post-doc at Edith Cowan University (ECU) in Perth, WA. He was later employed by ECU as a Lecturer to help establish and coordinate the Bachelor of Science (Exercise Science and Rehabilitation). While in Perth, Greig became an ESSA Accredited Exercise Physiologist and chaired the WA Chapter of Exercise & Sport Science Australia to help champion clinical exercise physiology and sports science within the State. In 2012, and now with dual-citizenship (UK and Australia), Greig moved to a Senior Lecturer position in the School of Health Sciences at the University of Tasmania, where he currently teaches into a number of units that integrate his research experience and knowledge of exercise and sports science, clinical exercise physiology, exercise nutrition, and health promotion.

Expertise

  • Hydration
  • Hyperthermia and thermoregulation
  • Ergogenic aids
  • Training adaptation
  • Physical activity promotion and interventions

Research Themes

Greig's research aligns to the University's research theme of Better Health. He actively researches into two fields to examine: (1) the manipulation of training, equipment, diet and ambient temperature on exercise capacity and sports performance, and (2) the design and impact of physical activity interventions on health and fitness. Greig has studied numerous populations including competitive athletes, healthy, sedentary and overweight or obese children and adults, and adults with chronic disease. His research is mostly applied laboratory- or field-based, but also involves community-wide physical activity programs.

Collaboration

Greig is currently involved in projects in collaboration with Active Tasmania and Primary Health Tasmania to assess the design and impact of community-wide physical activity interventions on health and fitness, and to assess the impact of feedback on adherence to exercise.
