Research and Teaching

I lead the Population Physical Activity Lab (Pop-PA Lab) which conducts research incorporating a range of disciplinary perspectives and research designs, theoretical and methodological approaches in addressing three critical questions:

  • What factors cause or prevent physical (in)activity and sedentary behaviour?
  • How does participation in physical activity influence mental health?
  • How are effective population-level physical activity initiatives designed, delivered and disseminated for public health?
