My current research interests include women and embodiment within a physical activity context, and ageing and well being across the lifespan. My primary research interest is how sport and physical activity provides opportunities for wellbeing, with a specific focus on how women experience their bodies within this setting. I have recently written and published a couple of papers exploring how phenomenology and sociological theory can be used to provide a theoretical framework for the study of wellbeing experiences within sport and physical activity. I am also interested in the relationship between physical activity and wellbeing for older adults. I am presently working with a number of community-based organisations to help provide a meaningful definition of wellbeing from a community perspective, and explore how this relates to physical activity and health. I am also currently involved in a number of cross-school bids that focus on active ageing and physical activity intervention design and evaluation for older adults with chronic health conditions...
My earlier work and PhD focused on how cultural changes associated with the postmodern age such as the Internet effect our society and the ageing population. This has also led to an interest in how consumers use the internet and new technologies (such as application software) as a part of physical activity and exercise regimes.
I also have a passion for methodology, and particularly those that empower and involve the general public within the research process. I have recently collaborated with internationally renowned authors on a number of methodological journal articles that focus of the formal conceptualisation and review of Mixed Methods Phenomenological Research.more
