I have two themes to my research interests firstly I contribute to the Musical Impact study investigating the well-being and lifestyle behaviours of classical musicians.
Secondly the investigation of the promotion and effect of physical activity on various heath issue populations – I.e. I contribute to the Cardiff Metropolitan University “Diabetes and Metabolic Health Research Group (2010-ongoing).Investigation of the affective experience of living with type 1 and type 2 diabetes (T2D) and its associated complications in terms of treatment behaviour.
