Although the importance of physical activity for health is well established, much assumed knowledge in this field is based on methods that classify people as ‘active’ or ‘inactive’ at one time point and do not account for changes in physical activity and sedentary behaviour across the lifespan. The wide variation in patterns of physical activity and sedentary behaviour in everyday life raises questions about the weakness of the traditional ‘one-size fits all’ approach used to explore relationships between physical activity and health.
Dr Gregore Mielke is an NHMRC Emerging Leadership Fellow at the School of Public Health, The University of Queensland, Australia. His research focuses on measuring and understanding 1) patterns of physical activity and sedentary behaviour across the lifespan; and 2) inequalities in population health. During his short career (PhD awarded in 2017), most of his work has involved multidisciplinary research, transitioning from an early focus on physical education to the behavioural epidemiology of physical activity.
