Research Interests

My teaching, research, and professional service is focused on teaching and teacher education in physical education, sport and adapted physical education; Specifically, I have a deep interest in the attitudes and perceptions of pre-service PE teachers and the facilitation of inclusion with the Irish educational system. My current research projects focus on the physical activity levels of children with disabilities as well as parent perceptions of the assessment and IEP process as they relate to Physical Education in Ireland.
