Sepand's research focuses on the interplay of cultural and psychosocial influences on the understandings of and participation in physical activity. She uses a critical (anti) decolonial interpretation of physical activity and its implications on individuals’ well-being. In her current project, she considers the critical and transformative aspects of using decolonial and culturally relevant methodologies (i.e. visual and arts-based methods) within a participatory action research model in order to explore young refugees engagement with physical activity, movement and sport.
