Research Overview

My research interests include physical activity, specifically increasing physical activity in the adolescent population. I also have a background in exercise science and athletic training so I am very interested in the exercise physiology aspect of things. I am currently working on a Master’s Project where our team have developed social media platforms on Facebook and Instagram, looking to see if it is feasible to increase levels of physical activity and healthy eating habits in children, adolescents, and their parents through remote access. Our ultimate goal of this project is to increase awareness, and exposure to evidence based health information reported from credible a team of dietitians and health professionals.
