Biography

I currently teach physical education courses at the University of the South Pacific based in Suva, Fiji. I had taught physical education in Solomon Islands high schools and was a School Principal prior to joining Teacher Education at the Solomon Islands College of Higher Education. I had coached soccer at high school, college and the Solomon Islands senior league but have now concentrated on table tennis coaching to national championships, Oceania championships, Pacific Games and up to the Commonwealth Games.

Research Interest

My research areas are physical education pedagogy, physical activity and health, sport education and other educational issues that interest me. I am regularly on the Vice Chancellor’s Research Award for High Quality Publications since it began in 2012.
