Dr Adam Geraghty, University of Southampton
Senior Research Fellow
I am a Senior Research Fellow within the Unit of Primary Care and Population Sciences at the University of Southampton. My research involves the application of psychological science to challenging issues in primary medical care. As a research psychologist, I have developed interventions to support patients in self-managing problems such as back pain, severe emotional distress and chronic dizziness.
I am interested in how digital interventions can be used to deliver and increase access to treatment, and also how they can help researchers understand why interventions work.
I also lead a theme of research on distinguishing emotional distress from psychiatric disorder in primary care patients. I draw on a diverse range of approaches including randomised controlled trials, cross sectional studies and qualitative methods to address questions with the aim of improving the health of patients.
