He collaborates with investigators from several cohort studies including the Tasmanian Older Adult Cohort, Concord Health and Ageing in Men Project and Healthy Ageing Initiative (Sweden). He also currently leads several clinical trials exploring the effects of targeted exercise and nutrition interventions on body composition, physical function and bone health in older populations.
