Professional interests

I have previously worked in further education for 11 years, teaching on sport and exercise science and fitness courses. I worked up to Curriculum Manager whilst also studying part time for my PhD. I then changed further education institutions, teaching on a Foundation Degree programmme in Sport Science for Coaching and Performance.

My main research interests lie within the field of physical activity levels and fundamental movement skills in preschool children.
