Research Interests

Sitting at the intersection of physical and mental health, my PhD investigates associations between physical activity, sedentary behaviour, and physical fitness with mental health. Through several biological and psychosocial pathways, these modifiable factors may influence the development and progression of mental illness. Targeted approaches for promoting activity and fitness could help to reduce the substantial burden associated with common mental health symptoms.

My research uses data from large population-based cohorts to explore possible relationships between physical activity, sedentary behaviour, and physical fitness with depression and anxiety disorders.
