About Lorena Lozano-Sufrategui

Lorena Lozano's expertise is on the promotion of physical activity and health for a range of populations, including children, adults, and people with disabilities. Lorena uses a range of qualitative methodologies to explore how to promote health in hard-to-reach populations.

Lorena is a Senior Lecturer in Physical Activity, Exercise and Health. Lorena graduated with her first degree in PE teaching in 2007, before going to complete a BEd in Early Childhood Studies, and then a BSc in Sport and Exercise Sciences. She also holds an MSc in Physical Activity and Public Health and a PhD.

During the completion of the above degrees, Lorena also gained valuable practical experience in a variety of settings, including: coaching athletics, working as a volunteer promoting sport for children and adults with disabilities, personal training, and taking the role of an exercise instructor in cardiac rehabilitation programmes.

Lorena's research aims to understand hard-to-reach groups experiences of participating in health-improvement interventions.
