Visiting Researchers

This year, new researchers from around the world will be visiting the school to take part in some amazing research, collaborating with Memorial researchers and enjoying the Newfoundland culture. They include:

• Dr. Adeogun Femi from Nigeria who will spend his sabbatical here next year.

Dr. Eric Drinkwater, a researcher from Australia and Memorial alum, will be here for the month of December for research collaboration. He teaches at Charles Sturt University in New South Wales, Australia where his research focuses on exercise and sport science concentrating on strength and conditioning training for athletes. Dr. Drinkwater first attended Memorial in 1990 working towards being a physical education teacher and returned in 1998 to study exercise physiology as a graduate student.

Dr. Willardson teaches kinesiology and biomechanics and his work has been cited in magazines such as Muscle and Fitness, Shape and Men’s Health.

Professor Mario DiSanto from Argentina comes every January for Memorial’s facilities that his university does not have. DiSanto is Head of the Chair of Gymnastics III and IV at the Instituto del Profesorado de Educación Física in Córdoba, Argentina. Learn more about Professor DiSanto...
