I am a Lecturer in Health and Wellbeing at the University of Strathclyde. I am also an Honorary Research Fellow at Ghent University where I graduated with a master's degree in Physical Education and Movement Sciences, and a doctorate in Health Sciences.
The focus of my research is physical and motor development of children and adolescents through physical activity contexts such as physical education and sports. My work is situated under 3 broad themes: assessment and monitoring, individual and environmental factors, and intervention programmes. I adopted this comprehensive approach to further understand young people's development and to better promote an active and healthy lifestyle.
