Research interests

Stuart’s research focuses on physical activity, sedentary behaviour, and health with an emphasis on children and young people and the role of schools in activity promotion. His research aligns to the behavioural epidemiological framework with key aspects relating to physical activity and sedentary behaviour measurement, their correlates, and interventions to change activity behaviours and health outcomes. Stuart has published over 120 peer-review journal articles, supervised 18 PhD students to completion, examined 19 PhD candidates, and has been awarded over £0.5M in external grant funding. He is co-editor of the forthcoming Routledge Handbook of Youth Physical Activity (with Tim Brusseau and David Lubans).
