Dr. Chia Eng Hock , Ph. D.(ANU)
Dr. Chia’s work on Genome-Wide Exercise for Everybody benefits from his multidisciplinary expertise in the movement arts, exercise science, environmental health, computational science, the front end of innovation and user experience design, as well as his connections with inventors worldwide. It is also inspired by his current and lifelong experience across the entire spectrum of extreme, endurance, adventure and nature sports.
With a PhD from the Australian National University, he has taught and conducted research in leading universities across multiple disciplines in Australia, Canada, Singapore and the United States. For fitness training, he holds a current ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine) Exercise is Medicine® certification for exercise professionals.
At home in the ocean, he is a PADI advanced scuba diver, and an avid participant in endurance multisport, from the Singapore Aquathlon to long distance obstacle course racing. As naturalist, nature adventure athlete and environmental scientist, he has trekked through primary rainforest and dived off remote islands.
Complimenting his work on exercise design, Dr. Chia is in the new field of nutrition based on biomedical agriculture. He was one of two scientists from Singapore invited and hosted to join experts from 71 countries for the Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture in 2015.
He has been listed in the Cambridge Dictionary of International Biography, the IFIP Asia Pacific Directory of Information Systems Faculty, the US-based Marquis Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, and other reference works.
