Robert Andrew Robergs

Associate Professor - Exercise Physiology, Queensland University of Technology

I completed a B.Ed. in Physical Education and Geography at the State College of Victoria-Rusden Campus (now Deakin University) in 1978. I commenced a Masters Preliminary year (Exercise Science) at the University of Western Australia in 1985, and then moved to the USA to complete a M.Ed. in Exercise and Sports Science and Cardiac Rehabilitation at Wake Forest University (North Carolina) in 1987. I completed a PhD in Human Bioenergetics at Ball State University in Indiana in 1990. I accepted an academic appointment at the University of New Mexico in 1990, where I eventually received tenure and was promoted to Professor. I left the USA for a return to Australia in 2011, where I worked at Charles Sturt University as a Research Professor from 2011-2016. I then commenced a research and teaching appointment at Queensland University of Technology in 2016.
