Current/recent research projects


Sport and Recreation Spatial: A program of research involving development and dissemination of knowledge for the sport and recreation, health and education sectors. This is achieved through the collection of data pertaining to participation in sport and physical activity, together with measures of demography, individual and community health, facilities and infrastructure, followed by data integration, statistical analysis and data visualisation via geographical information system (GIS) programming and mapping. This provides increased capacity for strategic planning and policy development.

Triple G – Girls Get Going:  Design, implementation and evaluation of a program designed to better link school physical education with community sport and active recreation in order to promote increased levels of physical activity and wellbeing for adolescent girls living in regional and rural settings.
