Research interests

Lisa was awarded her PhD through University of Sydney, Faculty of Medicine,
School of Public Health in 2009. She investigated the relationship between early motor skill mastery and physical activity participation and fitness in adolescence.
She has a Masters in Public Health and over 10 years professional health
promotion experience. Lisa's research interests are in the development,
implementation, evaluation and long term follow-up of physical activity
interventions in children and adolescents. A key interest is the role actual and
perceived fundamental movement skill ability has to physical activity behaviour. Within this broad area she is also interested in the role of active video games in children's skill acquisition.
