Personal profile

Research interests

I joined the University of Bath in November 2017 as a Lecturer in Public Health within the Department for Health.

I completed a PhD in Sport and Health Sciences at the University of Exeter, evaluating ‘Devon Active Villages’ – a community-level physical activity intervention delivered to rural villages across Devon. This study was the first to use a stepped-wedge cluster randomised control trial design to evaluate a physical activity intervention. Working as a Research Associate at the University of the West of England I evaluated ‘Living Well, Taking Control’ – a community-based type 2 diabetes prevention and management lifestyle education programme. As part of this role, I worked with the University of Exeter Medical School as a co-applicant on the NIHR SPHR PHPES ComPoD (Community-based Prevention of Diabetes) randomised control trial. As part of the APPHLE Health Integration Team, I conducted a scoping review on the provision of physical activity for older adults in the South West. In 2015, I joined the University of Bristol as a Senior Research Associate, project managing the British Heart Foundation-funded longitudinal study ‘B-Proact1v’, which investigated physical activity and screen-viewing behaviours among families as children progress through primary school. While at the University of Bristol, I was part of a collaborative team that received Cancer Research UK innovation funding to pilot a physical activity intervention promoting play across the lifespan. I led a team to develop and expand ‘FAB Kids’, a public engagement workshop with primary school children to promote healthy behaviours.

I am a physical activity researcher with a particular interest in parents and families, and how community-level interventions can be used to increase population-levels of physical activity, improve public health, and reduce health inequalities. I have experience in quantitative and qualitative research, and my research has utilised both objective and self-reported measures of physical activity. I have also supervised several Master’s student dissertation projects on the topic of sugar consumption, stress and evaluating Jamie Oliver’s Sugar Smart campaign.

I have published my research in leading peer-reviewed journals and academic conferences, and have been successful in securing in excess of £500k worth of external funding as a co-applicant on research projects (e.g., NIHR, CRUK, ESRC).

Research interests:

-          Physical activity behaviour among parents and families

-          Community-wide public health interventions

-          Sugar Smart initiatives

-          The role of play across the lifespan
