Sophie Phillips

Sophie is a Research Associate at PEDAL. Sophie has a passion for improving the health and development of children and reducing health inequalities from the earliest years, primarily through movement behaviour (encompassing physical activity, play, sedentary behaviour, and sleep).

I’m a Research Associate working on the Helping Little Minds Thrive project, led by Dr Christine O’Farrelly. Before joining PEDAL, I was a Research Associate in the Department of Sport and Exercise Sciences at Durham University, where I also completed my National Institute for Health Research School for Public Health Research (NIHR SPHR) funded PhD.

My PhD research involved assessing options for measurement of movement behaviour of pre-school aged children. I have also worked on a range of projects with a focus on improving child health.
