Anne Ferrey


Senior Researcher

I am a cogntive psychologist with a background in cognitive neuroscience and behaviour change. I have a wide variety of research interests, including health decision-making, the interaction between health and mental health, parenting strategies, and novel methods of supporting well-being and mental health.

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
  • CRUK Policy Research for Cancer Prevention grant – a UK-wide survey of clinicians’ use of e-cigarettes for smoking cessation/harm reduction

As well, I currently manage the MaSC trial (Management of Smoking in Primary Care - Rachna Begh and Paul Aveyard), which has included intervention development using the Person-Based Approach.

I also collaborate with colleagues at the University of Southampton on the development and evaluation of the RECON programme (Reducing and preventing Cognitive impairment iN older age groups), and with colleagues at the Oxford Eye Hospital who are developing and testing new technologies to provide contrast-enhanced feedback to visually impaired people.
