Academic Biography

Research interests

I am a Lecturer in Psychology (Health) and Chartered Health Psychologist in the department of Psychology hosted by the School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Law. My research involves the development, implementation and evaluation of complex interventions targeting a range of health/lifestyle behaviours, particularly weight loss (exploring physical activity and diet). I am interested in the use of technology (eHealth/mHealth) within behaviour change interventions. My work focuses on translational research investigating how research is implemented in practice. This has involved service evaluations identifying potential service improvements. I have worked with a range of stakeholders and disciplines (e.g., NHS professionals, patients, local authority, Public Health England, charities, web developers).
