Dr Hunt’s research interests focus on human health and performance in extreme environments. Dr Hunt completed his PhD studies of the heat strain experienced by surface mine workers at the Queensland University of Technology before commencing as a thermal physiologist for the Defence Science and Technology Group. In this role he conducted research for enhancing the performance of military personnel through the vast array of environments to which they may be exposed. Now a research fellow at QUT, Dr Hunt’s research continues to investigate human performance in extreme environments and is also exploring the potential health benefits of heat therapy.
