Projects per year
I work at the University of Strathclyde's School of Education. I previously studied and worked at Ghent University's Department of Movement and Sports Sciences where I graduated with a master's degree in Physical Education and Movement Sciences (Physical Activity, Fitness and Health), and a doctorate in Health Sciences.
My research area is physical activity and health among children and young people. My research aims to support children and young people’s capabilities (e.g., self-perception, fitness, fundamental movement skills), opportunities (e.g., school, home, community), and motivation to participate in physical activity.
My research themes include:
- Active places of learning
- Sport and recreation for all
- Active travel
I co-lead the Active Healthy Kids Scotland and FitBack Scotland projects with Prof John Reilly. I am also a member of the International Motor Development Research Consortium (I-MDRC) and the Health Enhancing Physical Activity (HEPA) Europe Network.
