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 ~ whole-school physical activity
  • Sport and active recreation for all
  • Active travel

I co-lead the Active Healthy Kids ScotlandFitBack Scotland and SUNRISE 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.
