Matt is a Lecturer in Exercise Science and Clinical Exercise Physiology at Flinders University, and an Adjunct Research Fellow at Federation University Australia. His main research area involves investigating the effects of exercise on cardiometabolic, musculoskeletal and psychosocial health in individuals diagnosed with a chronic medical condition. This includes solid-organ transplant candidates and recipients, people living with and beyond a diagnosis of cancer, and more recently, individuals at risk of poor mental health. His research interests are also directed towards examining the use of alternative methods of delivering exercise using mHealth, telehealth and wearable technology in these cohorts. Matt is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist and Exercise Scientist with Exercise and Sport Science Australia (ESSA), and has strong links with Transplant Australia and the World Transplant Games Federation to promote the benefits of regular exercise and organised sport for organ transplant candidates and recipients.
