About me

I have recently started a new post as Senior Lecturer in Public Health.  Before this I was working on my Arthritis Research UK foundation fellowship, which was a personal post-doctoral fellowship enabling me to explore the experiences, coping styles and support needs of men with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).   Our future plans for this work are to develop and test an appealing and effective self-management intervention targeted towards men with RA.

I obtained my undergraduate degree in Psychology from University of Wales, Swansea (2005) and my Health Psychology MSc from UWE (2007).  My PhD is 'Characterising daily fluctuations, flare and self-management in rheumatoid arthritis: The patient perspective' and was funded by Arthritis Research UK (UWE, 2012).


Area of expertise

My areas of expertise are within Rheumatology, particularly Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), centred around the patient perspective.

My particular areas of expertise and interest are: men's experiences and perceptions of illness; fluctuating symptoms in daily life, disease flare, self-management, help-seeking behaviours, remission and equity.

I am part of the OMERACT working groups of Equity and Contextual Factors.

I also have an interest in qualitative methodologies and Q-methodology, a quasi-quantitative method, which I used during my doctoral studies, post-doc fellowship and an international study to understand delegates' view on the OMERACT conference.
