Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a Senior Lecturer and Programme Director for the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at QUB since January 2017. I completed my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from QUB in 1997 and graduated with a PhD from St Andrews University in 2005. I am registered as a clinical and a health psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council. I have split my working time between NHS and academic posts since qualifying. My research interests are in the area of the development and evaluation of psychological (e.g. cognitive behaviour therapy)/behaviour change interventions to reduce the psychological sequelae of physical health conditions (cancer, chronic pain, asthma, IBD) as well as disease prevention through encouraging lifestyle change (e.g. diet/oral hygiene).
