Physical activity promotion and evaluation of practice.

Paul joined the British Heart Foundation (BHF) Centre on Population Approaches for NCD Prevention, previously known as the BHF Health Promotion Research group in July 2008. His focus is research which contributes to development of effective methods for physical activity promotion, with a view to reducing the burden of chronic disease. He has a particular interest in sport and walking. His most recent project was an analysis of European Approaches to promoting physical activity and sport in children and adolescents, conducted for the HEPA Europe network.

Current projects include HEAT (Health Economic Assessment Tool) for Walking and Cycling, which models the health and economic benefits of walking interventions, developing a Blueprint for "Youth Friendly Physical Activity" with the World Health Organisation and exploring the use of digital photography to investigate physical activity behaviour using SenseCam.
