I am a Stage 2 accredited Health Psyhologist, completing my PhD in Health Psychology Research and Professional Practice at the University of Southampton in 2019. I also hold an MSc in Health Psychology (University of Southampton) and BSc in Psychology (University of York).
I have worked as a senior research fellow at the University of Southampton since 2020, and continue to work part-time across both Leeds and Southampton Universities.
I am a Research Fellow and Health Psychologist based in the Leeds Institute of Clinical Trials Research. My research focuses on developing and evaluating accessible behaviour change interventions to support health promotion and self-management of long-term conditions, and I am a member of the LUCID group Leeds Unit for Complex Intervention Development. I am confident in using the Person-Based Approach (PBA) to intervention planning and development, and I teach PBA workshops for new users.
I am experience in designing and conducting qualitative literature reviews, qualitative and mixed-methods process evaluations, feasibility studies and service evaluations. I am also a member of the Qualitative Reflective Practice Group.
