    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    My research program explores physical activity, sedentary behavior, and related psychosocial health outcomes across the chronic disease context. I am also involved in (and leading) several studies to objectively assess sedentary time and physical activity behaviors of cancer survivors and individuals with other chronic diseases. I am currently engaged in several national and international studies focusing on the health consequences of physical activity and sedentary behavior among cancer survivors, and individuals with other chronic diseases including stroke (I am a stroke survivor myself) and gastrointestinal diseases.

    Personal profile

    I am a Professor and Canada Research Chair in Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Management in the Faculty of Health Disciplines. I have over 140 peer-reviewed publications in the areas of physical activity, sedentary behaviour, health, and chronic disease. Most of our work has been in the area of cancer. I have also published in populations including older adults, pediatrics, diabetes, stroke, irritable bowel disease, and renal disease. I have been successful at both provincial and national investigator competitions (e.g., Canada Research Chairs program, Canadian Institutes for Health Research New Investigator, Alberta Innovates Population Health Investigator). My research has been funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and I have worked with and mentored scientists both in Canada and overseas.
