Praneel completed his PhD research in 2018 under the supervision of Professor Robert Robergs during his tenure at Charles Sturt University, where he developed skills in electronic engineering, computational fluid dynamics, computer-aided drafting, and applied these skills to the field of exercise physiology for the purpose of developing a novel device to be used the science of indirect calorimetry and metabolism. Following his PhD, Praneel went on to employment as Lecturer at the University of Wollongong, where he led the delivery of exercise prescription and exercise physiology subjects throughout 2019. Currently, Praneel resides in Port Macquarie as Lecturer in Exercise & Sports Science for Charles Sturt University, teaching into the Exercise & Sports Science course.
