About

I work primarily in the field of Clinical and Health Psychology and lecture at both undergraduate and MSc level. I also teach on a range of other modules including Biological Psychology, Research Methods and Analysis and Epidemiology and Statistics.

Teaching responsibilities

I lead our most popular third year optional module, Clinical Applications of Psychology. 

Research interests

My research interests lie within addictive behaviours and the impact of addiction on family members and significant others. My PhD evaluated an evidence-based family-intervention to promote the inclusion of affected family members within routine addiction services.
