I joined the School of Psychological Sciences and Health in January 2017, having previously worked at the University of the West of Scotland. Prior to this I completed my PhD and MSc at the University of Stirling and undergraduate degree at the University of Glasgow. My research is within the area of Health Psychology and I am interested in the link between personality and health outcomes, and psychological aspects of infection prevention and control.
I am the 3rd year tutor on the BA Psychology programme. In addition, I am the topic leader for the 4th year Health Psychology class, and I also teach on the 3rd year Individual Differences class.
My research is within the area of Health Psychology and I have two main areas of interest. I am interested in how personality influences health outcomes, including cardiac disease related outcomes and health behaviours, such as, physical activity and alcohol use. I am also interested in understanding the behavioural and psychological aspects of infection prevention and control (e.g. hand hygiene behaviours, vaccination uptake, social distancing behaviour and antimicrobial stewardship).
