Area of expertise

I have co-edited two key texts in the field of public health and health promotion: Public Health for the 21st century: new perspectives on policy, participation and practice (2nd Edition) published by McGraw-Hill/Open University Press, and Health Promotion: Professional Perspectives published by Palgrave. My research interests extend across the field of multidisciplinary public health and include healthy settings and communities (particularly food culture and alcohol related behaviour); work, health and wellbeing; young people and risk taking behaviour (particularly alcohol related behaviour in higher education linked to NUS Alcohol Impact Programme); public health workforce development.
 
Recent and current projects include the evaluation of drama projects involving vulnerable young people; a systematic review of the impact of arts based initiatives on young people's health; an alcohol and media project; Evaluation of Cymorth and Flying Start for the Welsh Assembly Government, the evaluation of the national Food for Life Partnership programme and a HEFCE funded project focused on Leadership and Governance for Healthy Universities.I chair UWE's Healthy University Group which reports to the Sustainability Board of the university.
