I am a research assistant working within the health behaviours team at the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences. I am currently the research assistant on the Livestock, Environment and People (LEAP) project looking specifically at reducing meat consumption. My role involves supporting with the development of behaviour change interventions, implementation of interventions within field based environments (supermarkets, worksite cafeterias etc.) and communication of results to key stakeholders.
I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology (BSc with hons) from the University of Stirling and also completed masters degree in Health Psychology (MSc) in 2015. During my MSc I completed a dissertation looking at the reasons for non-engagement of a Diabetes service through conducting interviews with people living with Diabetes. I am particularly interested in behaviour change interventions to improve health within people with chronic conditions and at a general population level.
