Your research interests in psychosocial oncology
Exercise psychology, particularly the role of social relationships and social support in physical activity and psychological well-being.

Up to three projects you are currently focusing on

Project One
Lived experiences of social support in group exercise programs 
In this qualitative study we are examining participants' experiences of being supported, and the actions and functions of that support.

Project Two
Associations between social support, physical activity, and quality of life. 
We have a series of quantitative studies investigating various forms of support, and their associations with physical activity and quality of life outcomes

Project Three
Social barriers and challenges in group activities for cancer survivors.
Groups can provide opportunities for interactions, but also social barriers and difficulties. We are investigating survivors' experiences with group interactions in physical activity contexts, challenges they encounter, and ways they cope.
