Biography

Professor Gregory Kolt is the Dean of Science and Health and Professor of Health Science at Western Sydney University. He also holds the role of Lead Dean - Workforce Development for the University. Prior to joining the University in December 2006 he was Associate Dean (Research), Professor of Health Science, and Founder and Co-Director of the Centre for Physical Activity and Nutrition Research in the Faculty of Health and Environmental Sciences at Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand.

Gregory Kolt has an academic background that spans several disciplines including psychology (specifically health psychology), physiotherapy, sport and exercise science, and education. He holds a PhD in Psychology and has worked extensively in academic and practice settings, including senior University appointments. His research achievements are recognised internationally with over $5 million of research grant funding and the publication of several books and over 130 journal publications. His extensive research experience has covered areas including physical activity and health (in child, adolescent, and older populations), primary health care, health promotion, psychological aspects of injury and rehabilitation, adherence to rehabilitation, injury epidemiology, and stress management.

He has also served on review panels for several national research funding agencies, has supervised many doctoral research students, and has been a keynote speaker at a number of international conferences.

Gregory Kolt is the editor of the comprehensive books Physical Therapies in Sport and Exercise (now in its 2nd edition and published in 4 languages) and Psychology in the Physical and Manual Therapies, both published by Elsevier. He was also one of the Founding Editors of the international journal Physical Therapy in Sport where he served as Editor from 1999-2008, and is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport. In addition, he sits on the editorial boards and advisory groups of several international journals.

Professor Kolt's leadership of Science and Health at Western Sydney University has contributed to the significant expansion and strengthening of these areas at the University.
