Biography

I have joined the Complexity in Health Improvement Programme at the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit in November 2017. My role involves evaluating and developing complex public health interventions. 

I am a physiotherapist and nutritionist and completed both degrees in Germany. In 2009, I moved to Glasgow to obtain an M.Sc. (Med Sci) in Human Nutrition with specialisation in Obesity and Weight Management (University of Glasgow). I completed my Ph.D. in Nutrition and Exercise Sciences at the Institute for Sport, Physical Education and Health Sciences, University of Edinburgh in 2014.

I worked previously as post-doctoral Research Associate at the University of Edinburgh’s Physical Activity for Health Research Centre (PAHRC) and the Centre for Medical Informatics, Usher Institute for Population Health Sciences and Informatics. Since completion of my doctoral degree I also have been involved in a number of short-term research projects at the Physical Activity for Health Group, University of Strathclyde.

Research interests

Research interests

  • Impact of nature-based childcare on health and wellbeing of children, families and communities
  • Educator and parental perception of risks and benefits of active outdoor play
  • Intergenerational physical activity and outdoor play intervention 
  • Child and adolescent healthy weight interventions
  • Improving sleep and mental health of young people
  • Co-design of mobile and wearable technology for adoelscent health and wellbeing
  • Association between childhood obesity, physical activity, cognitive function and academic achievement

Ongoing research projects

I am co-leading a programme of work aiming to answer: What is the impact of outdoor learning and play on the health and wellbeing of children, families and childcare staff?  The ongoing research projects are:

  • Nature-based early childhood education for child health, wellbeing and development: a systematic review
  • Outdoor play: Investigating parental and practitioner perceptions of risks, benefits and competencies
  • Empowering stakeholders in Early Learning in Childcare to evaluate and implement outdoor childcare

In addition, I am leading two systematic reviews:

  • Comparison of outdoor and indoor time and environmental factors of early childhood education and care settings on children’s physical activity and sedentary behaviour
  • Longitudinal and experimental evidence on young people's screen time, sleep and mental health

Recent research projects

  • NAP SACC UK trial (Nutrition and Physical Activity Self Assessment in Childcare)
  • Children Create: Amplifying the voices of children in the translation of physical activity related scientific evidence
  • Guidance for exploratory studies for complex public health interventions (GuESt

Summer internship projects

  • 2020: Outdoor play: Investigating parental perceptions of risks, benefits and competencies (Funder: Glasgow Children's Hospital Research Fund)
  • 2019: Exploring the potential of outdoor nurseries for health and wellbeing of children and families (Funder: MVLS Wellcome Trust Institute Strategic Support Fund)
