Lucy's research explores influences on the physical health and well being of young people. She has used both qualitative and epidemiological methodologies. Her current research includes use of data collected in the Millennium Cohort Study to explore childhood growth and obesity, including the psychosocial and behavioural consequences of this condition. Additionally, her research focuses on determinants of physical activity and sedentary behaviour in children, and related measurement considerations.
