Research Interests I am interested in how to improve quality of life among people with cancer using physical activity behaviour change. I am also interested in how digital technologies such as websites and wearable activity trackers can be used to assist this behaviour change. I currently have collaborations with researchers in Canada and Australia; we are developing and testing the feasibility of individually tailored, website delivered exercise programs and support for people diagnosed with cancer.
