Research summary

My PhD focuses on the physical activity and sedentary behaviours of preschool children, with a particular interest in factors that influence these behaviours outside of the preschool setting. I’m using a mixed methods approach, collecting interview, accelerometry and survey data from preschool children and their parents.

My PhD is supervised by Dr Katrina Turner (Centre for Academic Primary Care) and Prof Russ Jago (Centre for Exercise, Nutrition and Health Sciences).  I am also based at the Centre for Exercise, Nutrition and Health Sciences (School for Policy Studies).
