Jack Cannon joined CSU in 2005 after completing his PhD examining the neuromuscular mechanisms contributing to age-related changes in strength and the effect of resistance training. Prior to this, he worked in schools teaching secondary PDHPE, Western Institute of TAFE delivering modules in Fitness, and as a sessional academic at CSU in the School of Nursing and Midwifery, School of Biomedical Sciences, and School of Exercise Science, Sport and Health. He is currently the Discipline Leader for Exercise Physiology and Acting Associate Head of School.
Dr Cannon's research examines the neuromuscular mechanisms contributing to exercise performance and the development of fatigue in a variety of context, including ageing, resistance training, self-paced exercise, nutritional supplementation, and more recently cancer survivorship. The conceptual framework that guides this research is based around investigating the contributions of central nervous system regulation versus peripheral muscle fatigue on exercise performance. This research is strengthened by his expertise in LabVIEW™ and MatLAB™ software, which he uses to build high-level customised data acquisition and analysis systems.
Dr Cannon's contribution to teaching includes the co-ordination and delivery of undergraduate and postgraduate subjects, including:
