Research and Teaching

Grounded in critical and community approaches to physical activity psychology, Dr. Bennett’s work attends to the psychological, behavioural, and sociocultural factors shaping physical activity and health-related adaptational processes across the life course. Her work centers (i) the physical activity experiences of individuals living with chronic illness and disabilities, (i) physical (in)activity and the aging body, and (iii) elite athlete stress, emotion, and coping.
