Research

As a physiotherapist, my over-arching interest lies in facilitating people to maximise their well-being & quality of life. My research uses mixed methods and focuses on exploring the psychological constructs & individual factors contributing to health behaviour and how this knowledge can be used by clinicians. I have two main research directions. The first focuses on the importance of physical activity, especially in people with chronic and life-changing conditions, whilst, the second focuses on injury / illness prevention.
