Robert M. Malina

Robert M. Malina, Ph.D., is professor of kinesiology and adjunct professor of anthropology at Michigan State University. He taught at the University of Texas at Austin for twenty-eight years and moved to Michigan State University in 1995.
Professor Malina has earned degrees in physical education (University of Wisconsin, Madison, 1963) and anthropology (University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, 1968), and an honorary doctorate from the Catholic University of Leuven (1989). His primary area of interest is the biological growth and maturation of children and adolescents with a focus on performance, youth sports and young athletes, and the potential influences of physical activity and training for sports. Related areas of interest are the role of physical activity in the well-being of children and youths and the influence of chronic undernutrition on the growth, performance and physical activity of Latin American youths, with a primary emphasis on Mexico. The research in Mexico continues at present in the form of a follow-up study of two communities initially studied in 1968 and 1971. The research in Mexico also extends to the study of the motivations of urban Mexican youths for participation in sports and physical activity.
Professor Malina is presently editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Human Biology, past editor of the Yearbook of Physical Anthropology, and serves on the editorial boards of eleven journals in the sport sciences and biological anthropology. He was section editor for growth and development for the Exercise and Sport Sciences Reviews from 1981 to 1999.
