Areas of expertise Anne's research interests focus on theoretical approaches to lifestyle behaviour change in adolescents and adults, ranging from preventive health behaviours and attitudes (physical activity, food choice, weight management and dieting) to the benefits of exercise and diet in mental health (depression, eating disorders). Recent interventions aim to facilitate physical activity in hard to reach populations (adolescent girls, people with depression, pregnant women) while other work explores psychological factors (body checking, social physique anxiety, perfectionism) related to eating disorders. Her research employs various methodology ranging from qualitative and quantitative approaches to interventions.
Media experience I have done some radio and television interviews, as well as phone interviews.
