I am currently in the first year of my PhD in Health and Wellbeing, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). My research focus is intervention fidelity applied complex health interventions which aim to increase physical activity and reduce depression. Behavioural interventions are becoming more complex, as such, it is essential to understand the mechanisms underneath to increase scientific confidence in their effectiveness.
In 2010 I obtained my BSc in Psychology from Winchester, followed by my MSc in Health Psychology from Southampton, however I have not always been in academia and have previously worked in finance, care work and health research. I have a strong belief that prevention is far better than cure, and I feel very privileged to be conducting research in such a relevant and rewarding area.
My supervisors are Professor Adrian Taylor (Plymouth University Medical School), Dr Colin Greaves (University of Exeter Medical School), Dr Paul Farrand (University of Exeter Mood Disorders Centre) and Dr Anne Haase (University of Bristol)
