Summary of Research Interests

My research focuses on health psychology and public health, covering preventative health behaviours, health in ethnic minority populations, and psychosocial aspects of long-term conditions. Through my work, I aim to contribute towards helping people lead healthier, longer, and happier lives.


Research Projects & External Funding

My recent and current research projects span a range of public health concerns, including COVID-19 vaccine acceptance in ethnic minority groups, effectiveness of cancer awareness campaigns, and interventions for long-term health conditions. These projects, funded by organisations such as the NIHR, Public Health England, Prostate Cancer UK, and the Youth Endowment Fund, aim to improve health outcomes through community-centered approaches and evidence-based interventions. They cover diverse areas from mental health support for young people to barriers to healthcare access among minority populations.

External Research Collaborations

I collaborate with academic, public sector, and non-profit organisations. My research projects have been funded by the NIHR, Prostate Cancer UK, and other bodies, contributing to public health strategies and knowledge. In the public sector, my collaborations with organisations like Public Health England and local councils, have been instrumental in conducting research that informs local public health policies and campaigns. My work with non-profit organisations has focused on community-based health initiatives, aiming to address health disparities and promote health and wellbeing in underrepresented populations.

External Roles and Professional Activities

I am External Examiner for the MSc Psychology programme at the University of Strathclyde. My involvement in research networks includes founding member and board member of the International Network for Research into Psychosocial Adjustment and Rehabilitation (INRePAR) and membership onthe International Network on Brief Interventions for Alcohol & Other Drugs (INEBRIA), where I contribute to global discussions on psychosocial health and substance use interventions.

My peer review activities span a diverse range of journals and funding bodies in psychology and public health. I have reviewed articles for journals such as Psychology and Health, European Journal of Cancer Care, and BMJ Public Health. I am also a grants reviewer for NIHR Public Health Research.

PhD and Research Opportunities

I am open to supervising PhD students in health psychology and public health, particularly those interested in vaccine hesitancy, health behaviour change, and psychosocial aspects of cancer screening.
