My research expertise is in the field of health psychology and has a particular focus on behaviour change theories and developing interventions to improve young people's health and well-being. Recent key projects have explored the potential of using digital tools to reduce alcohol misuse in adolescents and students. I am interested in the social and emotional aspects of health behaviours, and in the application of dual process theories, such as the Prototype Willingness Model.


I teach on a range of modules at Oxford Brookes, including Research Methods, Psychology and Contemporary Issues, and Evidence Based Prevention. I completed my Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching in Higher Education (PCTHE) in 2014 and I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. In 2015 I was shortlisted for a Brookes Union Teaching Award. I have also been an Associate Lecturer with The Open University since 2008, teaching on psychology, social sciences and Access to Higher Education modules.
