Dr. Moazzam Tanveer


I am Dr. Moazzam Tanveer, currently serving as a full-time Consultant/Assistant Professor in the Department of Physical Education and Sport Sciences at Health Services Academy, Islamabad. My professional journey began in 2009 as a SAP consultant at IEC, followed by my representation of WAPDA as a Kabaddi athlete. Transitioning from my sports career, I embarked on a path of academic pursuit. In 2017, I was honored with the Chinese Government Scholarship to study at the esteemed Shanghai University of Sport (SUS), ranked first in China and 36th globally for sports ethics. During my tenure at SUS from September 2017 to June 2023, I attained proficiency in the Chinese language, achieving HSK-4 levels. Moreover, I successfully completed my Ph.D. in the same institution from September 2018 to June 2023. Throughout my doctoral journey, I undertook two significant research projects. The first project investigated the socio-ecological determinants of overweight and obesity among Pakistani school-aged children and adolescents. The second project focused on implementing a comprehensive intervention to address these health concerns from a social-ecological perspective. I am proud to be the first Pakistani graduate from Shanghai University of Sport. My dedication to academic excellence has been recognized, earning me the title of the best student of the year in both 2017-2018 and 2021-2022. My commitment to research, particularly in childhood obesity, has led to significant impacts, prompting the World Obesity Federation to update its data on overweight and obesity among Pakistani school-aged children and adolescents based on my findings.

Research Areas

My research focused on crucial aspects of childhood obesity, including determining the current prevalence of overweight and obesity among children and adolescents in Pakistan, analyzing its developmental characteristics, exploring the correlations between overweight and obesity and socio-ecological factors, examining and comparing combined ecological exposures to better understand their influence on childhood overweight and obesity, and developing an intervention strategy based on the social-ecological model.
My research findings had a significant impact, and the World Obesity Federation has updated Pakistani school-aged children and adolescents’ overweight and obesity data based on my results. This demonstrates the real-world implications and importance of my work in the field.
Motivation: My motivation stems from a deep commitment to improving the health and well-being of youth in different societies. I am driven by the desire to enhance their abilities and educate communities worldwide. I am seeking a challenging and rewarding position within an organization that fosters a highly competitive environment and utilizes my knowledge and potential for its growth and development. I am dedicated to seizing career development opportunities that will further enhance my skills and contribute to the advancement of my field
