Systematic reviews and meta-analyses

My research focuses on the roles that lifestyle factors (physical activity and sedentary behaviour (too much sitting) in particular) play in cancer prevention and cancer survivorship. Current projects include investigating the associations between physical activity, sedentary behaviour, and cancer risk (non-Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and breast cancer), and investigating whether physical activity and sedentary behaviour influence physical and psychosocial outcomes in non-Hodgkin lymphoma, colon cancer, and breast cancer survivors.
