Personal profile

Current research activities

As part of my PhD I am developing, implementing and evaluating a healthy lifestyle text-messaging intervention for adolescents focusing on physical activity, sedentary behaviour and diet. 

Current teaching activities and interests

I am currently a tutor for Sport & Exercise Science, Sport Development and Sport Coaching students in the module 'Exercise Psychology'. I have previously conducted tutorials in 'Physical Activity in Health and Exercise', 'Physical Activity and Lifelong Health', 'Research Methods' and 'Psychology of Sport'.

Area of academic expertise - outline

I have a background in Sport Science and have also worked as a sports coach. During my undergraduate degree and particularly during my MSc (Physical Activity for Health at Edinburgh University), I have focused on how physical activity can be effective in promoting health and wellbeing. I am interested in using improved physical activity and sedentary behaviours as a means to promote health in adolescents, with a focus on using technology to implement interventions.
