Research interests

Dr Hume is interested in active transport among children and adolescents, and the physical and social environmental factors that affect their opportunities and choices for walking and cycling. She is also interested in the development of novel intervention strategies to promote physical activity and reduce sedentary behaviours among youth. She is involved with several large-scale, ARC and NH&MRC funded projects examining these issues.
