Prof Christopher Lonsdale - Institute for Positive Psychology & Education (Faculty of Health Sciences)

Fully accredited supervisor - Can supervise as principal supervisor


I am interested in physical activity participation in a variety of contexts, including sport, exercise, school-based physical education, healthcare, and daily life activities (e.g., transport). I examine the personal and environmental factors that influence physical activity behaviour and evaluate interventions designed to increase participation across the lifecourse. I am also interested in the impact of physical activity on physical and mental health and well-being.
