About me

I am a Senior Lecturer and Chartered Psychologist with a special interest in all areas of Health Psychology, but have expertise in chronic illness management, healthcare delivery, medication adherence, and antibiotic stewardship/ resistance. Previous and present funded projects include using CBT-based techniques to support patient adherence to cancer (Health Education England) and cardiology medication (The Health Foundation), intervention design and delivery to upskill pharmacists and allied health professionals in shared decision-making with patients (NIHR), as well as the first international study into the urinary microbiome for patients with recurrent Urinary Tract Infections (rUTI) in collaboration Reading University, Loyola University, Chicago, and LiveUTIFree (www.liveutifree.com), where I am Director of Research & Innovation.

I also have a strong interest in human-animal interactions for well-being and the One Health movement. I am a Chief Investigator for the British Horse Society evaluating the 'Changing Lives through Horses' programme aimed at supporting vulnerable young people who have been excluded from mainstream education, enable them to achieve the six core challenge awards, and provide additional support into employment. With the British Horse Federation, I am investigating human behaviour change to impact animal welfare, training and treatment. For the Blue Cross, I am investigating dog theft and bereavement from the loss of a canine companion to update their pet loss and bereavement service and resources. I am also a member of the Psychological Sciences Research Group at UWE, Bristol and committee member for the Climate Environment and Action Group (CEAG) for the British Psychological Society (BPS).
