Research Summary

The overall goals of my research are to investigate how physical activity behaviours relate to current and long-term health outcomes in children in both clinical and community-based settings, and to identify strategies to improve physical activity participation in children. I collaborate with Interior Health on projects relating to pediatric diabetes and BC Children's Hospital Research Institute to address physical activity behaviours in children and youth with congenital heart disease.

I earned my doctorate from the University of Essex, UK where I examined the association between cardiovascular health and modifiable health behaviours in a large cohort of schoolchildren. I first joined UBC as a postdoctoral fellow in 2011 at the Centre for Hip Health and Mobility in Vancouver, before joining the Children’s Heart Centre at BC Children’s Hospital and UBC’s Department of Pediatrics in 2015. During these years, I have developed a keen interest in partnering with clinicians to conduct impactful pediatric health research. I use state-of-the art technologies to understand complex physical activity behaviours, particularly in at-risk pediatric populations in whom such insight might inform clinical care. In 2019, I relocated to beautiful Kelowna to join the new UBC Faculty of Medicine Centre for Chronic Disease Prevention and Management.
