Tannath is a postdoctoral research fellow with UNE and New South Wales Rugby League. Tannath’s research interests are focused on evidence-based methods to improve performance and identify athlete fatigue and readiness to perform in team sports. Tannath has worked in both an applied and research setting, completing his doctorate in Sport and Exercise Science through Victoria University, in conjunction with his role as sport scientist at the Newcastle Knights. Prior to joining UNE, Tannath was with the Brisbane Broncos as both a strength and conditioning coach and sport science coordinator. He is also an accredited exercise scientist and sports scientist (ESSA) and strength and conditioning coach (ASCA).
