I am a chartered health psychologist who began my research career at UCL before moving to the Royal Brompton Hospital in 2003 to set up and deliver the Health Psychology service for patients with respiratory and cardiac conditions.  In 2011 I came back to academia and joined QMUL where I have been working in the Centre of Primary Care alongside colleagues, specifically in the development and evaluation of multiple complex interventions.  I am also the Research Design Service (RDS) London methodology lead for health psychology and deputy editor of the British Journal of Health Psychology.  



Research Interests:

My research interest focuses around the development of complex behavioural or psychosocial interventions to support management of chronic conditions and evaluation of their delivery.  In particular I have interest in understanding and progressing methodology related to fidelity of interventions and training health care professionals to deliver behavioural approaches.   Currently I am working on the following programmes of work:-
