Dr Johnson???s research is focused on establishing a safe and efficacious exercise-training model that will promote recovery, improve cardiovascular health and quality of life after stroke. His research in assessing how exercise capacity changes over time after stroke will inform the development of exercise training guidelines to accelerate recovery, enhance motor function and reduce the disability experienced post-stroke. Dr Johnson has expertise in exercise testing and prescription in clinical populations and balance testing, and is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at Epworth HealthCare.

Nat Sch Psychology
I am a Clinical, Health, Educational and Developmental Psychologist and an Associate Professor in Clinical Psychology at Australian Catholic University Melbourne. My primary areas of research include; (1) the role of psychology in understanding and treating eating, weight and body image concerns and their biopsychosocial comorbidities (e.g., diabetes, depression, stigma), (2) the role of parents in improving child behaviour and well being, and (3) promoting evidence-based practice and the generation of practice-based evidence in 'real-world' settings.
I am particularly interested in developing and/or evaluating evidence based interventions, conducting intervention trials (including efficacy, effectiveness, implementation) and evaluating the effectiveness of real-world treatment programs. I work closely with a range of hospital, community and private treatment services and have recently lead the establishment of the ACU Clinic for Health Eating and Weight to provide high quality low cost assessment, treatment and support for eating, weight and body image concerns and to facilitate clinical research in this area.
