I am a Health Psychologist and Lecturer in the Primary Care Research Centre at the University of Southampton. My research involves applying behavioural science to develop interventions to improve health and well-being. I have developed and evaluated complex behavioural interventions to support people self-managing long-term conditions such as eczema, acne, diabetes, and chronic dizziness.  Much of my work has focused on how people engage with complex health interventions, and how to enhance accessibility and support for people with low health literacy. I co-created the Person-Based Approach to intervention development, which uses mixed methods to develop interventions which are engaging, accessible and motivating for end users. This methodology has been used internationally to develop successful, high impact interventions.
