Dr Lilian Chye
ICC Specialist, Interdisciplinary Collaborative Core Office
Lecturer, Interdisciplinary Collaborative Core Office
A sports injury during her days as a national athlete sparked Lilian’s interest in how our bodies adapt to training and recover from injury and trauma. As an avid learner, Lilian took a leap of faith to study Exercise and Sports Science at Edith Cowan University and never looked back. Lilian’s aspiration is to improve quality of life through cultivating healthy lifestyle in herself and others.

Lilian received her PhD in Exercise Science from The University of Queensland in 2015. Her early research career focus mainly on better understanding how the brain adapts and functions during unilateral exercises in the upper and lower limbs. She then joined the Geriatric Education and Research Institute as a Research Fellow, where she worked with stake holders and collaborators to pilot a community-based strength training program for the elderly and other frailty-related projects. To further enhance her knowledge and skills, Lilian joined a start-up company that designs medical fitness solution for chronic stroke survivors incorporating state-of-art technology, such as anti-gravity treadmill, to facilitate fitness training. This project enhances Lilian’s belief in approaching health in a holistic manner.

Prior to joining NTU, Lilian is an Associate Lecturer at Republic Polytechnic where she shared her knowledge and experiences in Exercise Science, Frailty and Active Ageing modules.

Lilian is constantly exploring different modalities to develop her health holistically. She is certified in Pilates Matwork, Reiki and Health Coaching.
