I am interested in the impact of the built environment on health outcomes across the lifespan. Current projects examine associations between greenspace and mental health in older adults, and the impact of the built environment on children's active transport and household travel patterns.
My PhD (Deakin, 2009) examined associations between neighbourhood safety and children's physical activity. My Post-doctoral research at Deakin University examined the impact of the built and social environment on children's active transport and independent mobility.
