Personal profile

Research interests

In my research I take a true translational approach from science to society by combining my scientific expertise in human movement science and epidemiology resulting in innovative studies in real-world situations. My research focuses on determinants and health consequences of physical activity (PA) and sedentary behaviour (SB) in youth, with a strong interest in underlying mechanisms and innovations in risk factor research. I am acknowledged for my innovations in methodology (e.g. mediation analyses, participatory action methods with children). Recently I developed novel analytical methods of accelerometer data providing detailed, unique information on SB and PA patterns
