Profile

Biography

Ina Shaw is currently the President of the International Physical Activity Projects (IPAP), a Co-director of the Non-Communicable Disease Intervention Research Unit (NCDIRU), and Visiting Professor, and Director of the Clinical Exercise and Rehabilitation Cluster (CERC) at the University of Essex. Prior to this, she was a Professor at the University of Zululand, Head of Physical Wellness Research at MMI Holdings, Head of Research and Deputy Pro-Vice Chancellor: Research (acting) at Monash South Africa (Campus of Monash University, Australia), and Associate Professor at the Vaal University of Technology. In addition, she has held previous honorary appointments as Professor Extraordinaire at the Tshwane University of Technology, Visiting Professor at the University of Johannesburg, and Adjunct Professor at the University of Venda. To support health promotion and curbing the expansion of non-communicable disease (NCD), Ina’s research focus has addressed the restriction of these diseases in various populations through physical activity. Since NCD afflicts all levels of society, she has strived to develop physical activity programmes that are suitable in an array of clinical and non-clinical settings and populations. In addition to her numerous scientific publications, she is a regularly invited contributor to popular press publications and has been profiled in the national and international media for her work. Her research has also been featured on international radio programmes and in magazines such as Woman’s World® (USA), Prevention® (USA), Runner’s World® (USA), and Muscle and Fitness® (USA) In addition to her contributions to the Encyclopaedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), a publication of UNESCO, her research has been utilised to bring about significant impactful changes in medical and life insurance systems.
