Personal profile

Research interests

I am a consultant senior lecturer and consultant in public health medicine. I have experience in mixed-methods research with experience in adapting behaviour change interventions, designing and conducting feasibility and pilot RCTs, and delivering public health interventions through primary care. I have experience in quantitative meta-analysis and qualitative meta-ethnography, in addition to work with large quantitative observational datasets.

My doctorate was funded through an NIHR Fellowship and involved developing a physical activity intervention to prevent disability in older people. A theory-driven behavioural intervention was developed; the feasibility of which was tested in a mixed-methods pilot randomised controlled trial (RCT), the PACE study. Outcome data collected in the study included: recruitment rates; acceptability and feasibility of the trial processes; accelerometry and self-reported physical activity; physical function; mental health; and quality of life. The pilot RCT included a nested process evaluation using qualitative interviews and non-participant observation.
