My PhD focussed on associations between neighbourhood safety and children's physical activity. As a post-doc I explored how the physical and social environments in which children live may influence their active transport and independent mobility (i.e. their freedom to walk or cycle around their neighbourhood, or similar, without adult accompaniment). This is still an area of interest for me, but I also look at the influence of the built environment on health more broadly across the lifespan.
