Professional Experience and Research Interests

Dr Mazanov is a recognised international expert on the management of drugs in sport and the anti-doping policy, leading to over 100 media appearances across broadcast (e.g. ABC Catalyst and SBS Insight), webcast (e.g. RI Aus) and major news sites (e.g. The Guardian and Sydney Morning Herald). 

With over 10 years of experience researching in this field, Dr Mazanov has developed a keen interest in the role of performance enhancement more broadly, with a special interest in so-called cognitive enhancing drug use in education.  This interest is supported by being Founding Editor-in-Chief of Elsevier's Performance Enhancement and Health, which explores the intended and unintended consequences of technology designed to enhance the human condition with regards to physical, social and spiritual health; from gadgets (e.g. wearables and smart phones) to management systems (e.g. anti-doping and recreation leave). 

Current Student Projects

Dr Mazanov is currently supervising student projects on :

  • women's experiences of anti-doping,
  • individual differences in cybersecurity,
  • psychosocial health and leave-taking,
  • the role of the person in integrated logistics systems,
  • cognitive bias in decision making, and
  • the philosophy of change management.

Future Student Projects

Dr Mazanov is keen to hear from students interested in:

  • performance enhancing drug use among professionals (e.g. lawyers)
  • cognitive enhancing drug use in secondary and tertiary education
  • the ethics of "astro-turfing" the academic career
  • performance enhancing technology policy and management
  • research integrity management
