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. A/Prof Barnett was one of the three lead investigators to develop the Australian Physical Literacy definition and standard - funded through Sport Australia. Developing measurement in physical literacy is a key interest area.  Lisa is globally recognised in the area of youth motor competence (National Citation report, Web of Science), and has >150 peer reviewed publications.
