Research summaryHealth psychology, health communication, social psychology, research methods
TeachingBehaviour change, health psychology, communication, research methods


Social psychology gives fundamental insights into decision-making about medicines, including adherence, preventive health behaviours, and communication between healthcare professionals and patients.

Recent projects include:

  • Everyday experience of illness and response
  • Cognitive enhancing drugs/substance use for academic enhancement
  • Understanding subconscious (implicit) attitudes towards medicines

Much of my research has a strong quantitative focus, and I have a particular strength in multivariate analysis. However, I strongly believe that much of the insight into what we should be measuring (counting) is derived from qualitative work; so also use qualitative methods where appropriate.
