Personal profile

Research expertise

My main research interests are in psychological and behavioural aspects of physical activity, sedentary behaviour and health.  My work is underpinned by behavioural epidemiology and has focused on health outcomes, physical activity and sedentary behaviour measurement, understanding the correlates of these behaviours and the design and evaluation of behaviour change interventions.  I have been involved in a number of randomised controlled trials of behaviour change interventions (e.g., PREPARE, STAND, Girls Active).  Populations I have worked with include children and adolescents, young adults, individuals at high risk of type 2 diabetes, older adults, and adults with peripheral arterial disease.  I have received funding from the Medical research Council, NIHR, government departments, health charities and commercial partners.
