Dr Jacqui Mair



Jacqueline's research aims to better understand the physiological and psychological effects of interrupting sedentary behaviour either through physical activity, exercise prescription or both. She is interested in how wearable and mobile technologies can be used to facilitate reductions in sedentary behaviour and increase moderate-vigorous physical activity levels in different populations and the impact these strategies have on health outcomes.
