Biography

I am interested and passionate about the health and well-being of young people and their families. 

I began my career at Liverpool John Moores University studying a degree in Exercise Science from 2008-2011, I then moved to Loughborough University to study Public Health and Physical Activity in 2011-2012. I then moved to the Bradford Institute for Health Research and joined the world leading Born in Bradford (BiB) project in 2012, where I worked the next 10 years on the BiB birth cohorts, aiding with large scale data collection, but also using the BiB cohort data to apply for research grants for original studies. At BiB I worked in roles such as PhD student (with Loughborough University, graduated in 2017), Research Assistant, Research Fellow, and Senior research fellow.

In 2023 I moved to the University of Bradford as Lecturer in Public Health.

The majority of my work is around the movement behaviours (physical activity, sedentary time, sleep) of young people (infants, toddlers, pre-schoolers, children and adolescents) and their families, but I am very much interested in all age groups, and other health issues such as obesity, eating, screen time, digital health and wider social determinants such as policy. 

I have planned, designed, and project managed research projects and complex evaluations and published research in the areas of epidemiology, psychometrics, applied research, intervention development, intervention evaluation including randomised control trials, and quasi-experimental methods. 

Research

Public health, children, young people and families, physical activity, sedentary behaviours, sleep, obesity.

Cross-sectional data, longitudinal data, intervention development, cohorts, cross-sectional, psychometrics, experimental and quasi-experimental evaluations. 

I have still work closely with the Born in Bradford project and have a honary contract.
