Marcela Haasova. BSc, MSc



I am interested in health promotion in general,specifically in the positive effects of physical activity on human well-being. During my MSc here in Exeter, I was intrigued by the role physical activity could play in smoking cessation. Particularly, I was interested how it may help to combat cigarette cravings associated with quitting smoking. In January 2010, I joined the School of Sport and Health Sciences at the University of Exeter as a PhD researcher. My inquiry is building on previous work done by Prof Adrian Taylor’s research group. I am working on quantitative synthesis of current evidence on the effects of acute physical activity on cigarette craving. The findings will generate insights into the use of physical activity in smoking cessation.
