I currently lead the programme for Community Sport Coaching, a flexible degree that incorporates both Foundation and Batchelors degree routes. I lead two modules on epidemiology for the new MSc in Physical activity and Public Health. I also teach psychology and research methods across the undergraduate coaching programmes available within the Institute.

My primary research interest surround health behaviours, specifically focusing on physical activity epidemiology. I am also interested in utilisation of outdoor/green space for the purposes of improving quality of life and health outcomes, especially non-communicable disease incidence. I use computer modelling and simulation as my main research methodology.
