Jennifer joined Born in Bradford as a Senior Research Fellow in September 2019. She is part of the research team evaluating ‘Join Us: Move. Play’, a programme which aims to increase physical activity and improve outcomes for children and young people aged 5 – 14. Jennifer is currently leading on developing the process evaluation of the programme and will develop behaviour change interventions to be tested as part of the programme.

Jennifer is a qualitative researcher with research interests in physical activity, sedentary behaviour, and intervention development and behaviour change. Prior to joining BiB Jennifer developed and feasibility tested an intervention to reduce sedentary behaviour after stroke. Her PhD research involved developing and evaluating a workplace intervention for reducing sitting and increasing physical activity amongst office-based employees.
