Biography summary

Dr Stuart Warmington is the Associate Head of School (Teaching and Learning) for the Sport/Exercise science suite of courses delivered within the School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences, Deakin University, Australia.
To this role Dr Warmington brings five years experience as course director of the Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science programme, and many prior years of experience as a University academic, researcher and leader at both Deakin University and Trinity College Dublin, Ireland.
Dr Warmington trained at the University of Melbourne as a muscle physiologist examining cellular aspects of muscle fatigue. His research is now focused on applications of exercise for the betterment of health, in particular blood flow restriction exercise. In addition, Dr Warmington is actively engaged in research in the field of recovery from exercise and using heart rate metrics to examine the physiology of recovery, sleep, and how these impact on athletic performance and wellbeing. As such, Dr Warmington is also an active researcher and a member of the Institute for Physical Activity and Nutrition (IPAN).

Research interests

Dr Warmington's research interests are focused on interrelated areas that attempt to better understand the physiological, logistical and functional benefits of exercise related to health. These include:

  1. The use of blood flow restriction exercise to improve muscle mass, strength and functional outcomes in populations unsuited to high-intensity strength training.
  2. The measurement and monitoring of recovery from exercise to better prescribe training and recovery to improve athlete health and minimise over-reaching/over-training.
  3. Improving tolerance to exercise in clinical populations and older adults.

Current Research Supervision at Deakin University:

  • 3 x HDR completion
  • 3 x current HDR's
  • 1-3 current Honours students per year

Teaching interests

Dr Warmington is an active teacher in the Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science course (H343) and related degrees/disciplines. His teaching interests are associated with areas related to physiology, exercise physiology, and the physiology of sport performance. In addition he is an active educator of research students with major contributions to Honours research projects and higher doctoral research student projects.
