Research interests

Dr Hinkley is particularly interested in how active young children are and their use of electronic screens such as television, electronic games and new generation devices including smart phones and tablets. She has a particular focus on identifying which factors might influence those behaviours during the early childhood period and developing strategies to support healthy levels of participation. Trinas research also investigates the social and emotional outcomes of participation in such behaviours.
