Behaviour change; choice architecture; evidence synthesis and quantitative research methods
I am a postdoctoral health behaviours researcher working on the Livestock, Environment and People (LEAP) project. LEAP is a 5-year Wellcome Trust-funded project coordinated by the Oxford Martin School Future of Food programme and the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences.
Prior to my appointment at University of Oxford, I held the post of Research Associate at University College London (UCL) where I worked within the National Guideline Alliance (NGA). Within this role I was conducting evidence synthesis projects (both quantitative and qualitative), contributing to the development of guidelines for the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
I recently completed my PhD in Health Sciences (University of Nottingham, UK). Within my PhD I tested the validity of a novel conceptual model in predicting psychological resilience in UK-based students.
