Dr Abigail Morris

Lecturer in Workplace Health and Well Being

Research Overview

My research expertise is in workplace physical activity and sedentary behaviour intervention development and evaluation. I am an interdisciplinary mixed methods researcher with experience conducting both process and outcome evaluations. I have used a variety of methods including objective activity data, cardio-metabolic measures, self-reported survey data, ecological momentary assessment as well as focus groups and interviews. I am currently involved in designing, delivering and evaluating a Sit Less and Move More (SLAMM) multi-component intervention among call centre workers (2016-2019). I am also involved in the delivery and evaluation of Exertime (2018-2019) and Rise and Recharge (2019-2020) interventions which aim to reduce total and prolonged sedentary time and increase physical activity at work among traditional office workers. These projects are technology based interventions and involve colaboration with national and international colleagues in both the UK and Australia.
