About me

About me

I am a Research Fellow working on the GOALD (Generating Older Active Lives Digitally) project; a collaborative project between the Universities of Stirling and Plymouth exploring the delivery of physical activity and sports-based reminiscence using digital technology in intergenerational groups.

Prior to this role, I have held research posts in the Complexity in Health Improvement Programme at the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, University of Glasgow and at the School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Surrey.

I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Stirling (2016-2020), where my thesis explored the key components of Exercise Referral Schemes pathway. This yielded novel evidence about the Exercise Referral Scheme pathways and understanding of key components that influence their effectiveness. I previously read for a BSc (Hons) in Sports Therapy (2010-2014, London Metropolitan University), followed by an MSc in Clinical Exercise Science (2014-2015, University of Portsmouth).

My general research interests are, physical activity for health, exercise as medicine, healthy ageing, and population health.
