About me

I'm a Research Fellow and Health Psychologist working at the Centre for Appearance Research (CAR) at UWE Bristol.   My current role involves co-ordinating two large multi-centre trials:
• Evaluating the effectiveness of an intervention to promote shared decision making for women considering breast reconstruction (PEGASUS).
• Testing the responsiveness of the CARe Burn Scales over time. This is part of a wider programme of research developing a set of burn-specific patient reported outcome measures (PROMs).

I'm also involved in several other research projects relating to the psycho-social impact of cancer, including research investigating patient and health professionals' experiences of and decision making around Contralateral Prophylactic Mastectomy (CPM).  My broader research interests include patient experiences, clinician-patient communication, and decision making and I'm particularly interested in these research topics with relation to cancer, chronic conditions, and appearance-altering conditions.
