Research Project

Comparing Low Volume, High-Intensity Aerobic and Resistance Interval Training with Current Exercise Recommendations on Glycaemic Control in People with Type 2 Diabetes.


Trishan Gajanand completed his Bachelor of Science (2008), Postgraduate Diploma in Science (2009), and Master of Science with First Class Honours (2011) from the University of Auckland. After graduating, Trishan worked as a Medical Writer in clinical trials for Springer Healthcare. His current research is in clinical exercise physiology, comparing combined low-volume high-intensity interval aerobic and resistance exercise training with combined moderate intensity continuous exercise training in participants with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Research Interests

Trishan’s research interests lie in cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, with a particular focus on the impact of exercise on blood glucose control and central haemodynamics in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Trishan presented at the Sports Medicine Australia conference in October 2017 and the Australian and New Zealand Obesity Society conference in October 2018.
