I am a Research Associate working within the Department of Psychology, Sociology & Politics. My background is in Sport and Exercise Psychology and I am primarily working on behaviour change projects related to health Psychology. I am currently close to completing my PhD which has explored the determinants of sedentary behaviour within desk-based employees.
I am working as a Research Associate within the Department of Psychology, Sociology & Politics. My area of interest is in Sport and Exercise Psychology, having studied for my Masters at Sheffield Hallam. I am particularly interested in health and well-being and the promotion of physical activity. As part of my role I am working closely with the Behavioural Science Consortium, a unique venture in which academics from Sheffield Hallam University and the University of Manchester provide the UK Government and the public sector with behavioural science insights. I also support other researchers within the department, helping them to develop, conduct and analyse different research projects. I have experience in conduction both qualitative and quantitative research methods.
I am also close to completing my PhD, which explored the Determinants of Sedentary Behaviour within Desk-Based Employees. I did my PhD at Sheffield Hallam University within the Centre for Sport and Exercise Science, in partnership with the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine.
My areas of interest are Sport & Exercise psychology, Health and Well-Being, Physical Activity, Sedentary Behaviour and behaviour Change.
