My Expertise

My expertise is in exercise oncology, particularly with childhood cancer survivors. I have a strong focus on improving physical activity and fitness levels in children and adolescents affected by cancer using digital health to engage this at-risk population. My focus also extends to understanding the needs and experiences of parents and families affected by childhood cancer, so that they can best support their child in health behaviours.
