Research interests
I am interested in examining physical activity-related behaviours, including aerobic activity, strength training and sedentary behaviour within the behavioural epidemiological framework. My research has focused on: assessing the behavioral risk factors associated with chronic disease; objective and subjective assessment of health behaviours; assessing the correlates and determinates of health behaviours; and designing and implementing lifestyle modification interventions to support health behaviours.
