I am an ecologist with rather eclectic research interests. My current primary focus is on the socio-ecology of physical activity and identifying the specific components of natural environments which promote activity. Green exercise is known to generate additional wellbeing effects and green and blues spaces are known to promote exercise, however the specific components of the environment involved in creating the green exercise benefit are still largely unknown. I have been using parkrun data to generate various measure of participation in the world’s largest active leisure and building socio-ecological models to quantify associations between these behaviours and components of the physical, social and political environments.
