Her research deals with lived and sensate ageing experiences to identify ways of enhancing the social and cultural location of older people via a focus on sport and physical activity in later life. She has investigated the factors which facilitate or inhibit the incorporation of physical activity into everyday life (focusing in part on the lessons that can be learnt from Master athletes), social and professional interactions in physical activity settings, the cultural meanings associated with being physically active and ‘sporty’. More recently, Emmanuelle turned her attention to the ‘discovery’ of sedentary behaviour as a public health problem.
