Dr John Whitting began his career in sport and exercise science, by completing his Bachelors degree in 2005 (1st class honours), and PhD in 2010, both in applied biomechanics at the University of Wollongong (UOW). In 2011 John took a position as a research fellow at the Human performance Laboratory (HPL) at the University of Calgary, before moving back to Australia in 2013 to take up a continuing academic position at Southern Coss University.


John's research interests in sport and exercise science have a main focus in applied biomechanics during highly dynamic movements and activities. Other notable research interests include understanding in-vivo tissue mechanics and muscle contraction mechanisms and potential practical applications.
