Anne Ferrey


Senior Researcher and Course Director, MSc Translational Health Sciences

I am a cognitive psychologist with a background in attentional control, behaviour change and the use of qualitative methods to develop interventions. My interests are varied and include social prescribing, health behaviour change, and novel methods of supporting well-being and mental health.

I also coordinate the new MSc in Translational Health Sciences, which focusses on the social science of innovation. I am a course tutor on the Behavioural Science and Complex Interventions module, which will focus on translating cutting-edge research into effective healthcare interventions.

I’m the primary investigator on the following projects:

  • Psychological Aspects of Vision Loss (PAVL) – a qualitative study looking at the effect of vision loss on mental health
  • The Yarnfulness Project – a science engagement and research project looking at possible benefits of creative activities such as knitting or crochet
