I am a PhD student at the University of Lorraine in France since 2014, and I am glad to visit and study with the Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research Group (HALO) at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute in Ottawa, Canada. I graduated from a master degree in Sport and Health Sciences and previously a licence degree in Training & Sport Sciences at the University of Rennes 2 in France. By being part of the community working to promote healthy lifestyle I am hoping I will contribute to the improvement of the population health and well-being. As many members of the HALO team, my interest in physical activity isn’t limited to my research topic and I enjoy spending my recreational time in outdoor-related physical activities.
