Personal profile

Personal Statement

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.

Research Interests

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.
