Researcher biography

Grace graduated with a Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Sciences with a major in Clinical Exercise Physiology (Honours) at The University of Queensland in 2017. Her research aims to address prevention of chronic disease, and alleviation of common side-effects and co-morbidities associated with treatment. Her research has progressed from exploring exercise as a means to improve bone loss associated with a cancer diagnosis, now to optimising exercise intensity in the improvement of inflammatory response and other health-related precursors, specifically implicated in the progression of cognitive decline. Grace is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist and continues to work with a variety of populations – including oncology and musculoskeletal rehabilitation populations.
