Research overview

I am a health psychologist conducting applied research to help inform psychological support programmes for behaviour change and emotional support.

I work with multidisciplinary groups to directly inform on public health programmes and clinical practice. In particular,

I perform and develop: a. critical reviews, b. survey and interview research, and c. psychological support programmes.

I developed an internationally recognised research programme and leadership in:

1. Psychology of cancer patients and survivors: My research finds effective ways of assisting cancer patients with psychological issues, e.g., fears of cancer coming back.

2. Development of psychological approaches to change lifestyle behaviours: My research investigates effective ways to achieve health behaviour change (e.g., smoking cessation, diet/physical activity change) among young people and those with cancer and heart disease.
