Matthew Mclaughlin

PhD Candidate, School of Medicine and Public Health, University of Newcastle

I'm an early career researcher with a passion for physical activity! My PhD investigates scaling-up an effective secondary-school based physical activity program, aptly named 'Physical Activity 4 Everyone'.

I'm a keen advocate of making research more accessible, and increasing it's use. I engage frequently with Twitter: @HealthTepi . I'm always keen to write guest blogs, join podcasts or do interviews! Shoot me a message.

My vision is of a more physically active world, where active people are supported by active environments.
