My research training is in pediatric exercise physiology and behavioral medicine. My current research focuses on factors that affect a child's motivation to participate in physical activity. This includes examining the effects of variety, peer influence and adiposity on the decision to participate in physical or sedentary activities. I also have an interest in biostatistics and research design.
