Teaching

I am class leader for the Sport and Physical Activity Psychology classes on the undergradute degree programme and contribute to the Research Project and Culture and Context in Sport classes. I supervise undergraduate dissertation projects and postgraduate MPhil and PhD students.

Research interests

My research interests mainly involve the psychological determinants of physical activity behaviour and the psychology of elite sport. Previous doctoral work focused on the psychological determinants of physical activity behaviour in adolescent girls during the transition from primary to secondary school. More recent work with this population sample is examining the efficacy of a physical activity consultation intervention with adolescent girls using social media as a follow-up strategy for behaviour change. Additional work examining physical activity and sedentary behaviour of adolescents within the school environment is also on-going.  I have a keen interest in transitions in sport and physical activity contexts, with a current postgraduate student project examining student health behaviours during the transition to University.
