My main area of research and expertise focuses on developing, delivering and evaluating health messaging/educational programming for a range of stakeholder groups, primarily on the topics of concussion and physical activity for health.
I have a background in neuro- and developmental psychology, and a general interest in policy, health communications, entrepreneurship and public speaking.
I lead the 'ConcussEd research and knowledge exchange group' on concussion. This is a multidisciplinary stakeholder group with representation from both local and national level.
