Personal profile


Grace is a Chartered Psychologist and Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Intelligent Healthcare, in the Behavioural and Implementation Science theme. Grace conducts research in the fields of domestic abuse, sexual violence and health. Her research broadly focuses on the development and robust evaluation of interventions for young people and adults who have experienced domestic abuse and/or sexual violence, and ensuring that the voices of victims/survivors are central to intervention design and evaluation. Grace is currently working on the £1.3m NIHR funded MESARCH project, evaluating sexual assault referral centres across England and examining health, wellbeing and service access among survivors of recent sexual abuse and assault.

In 2019 she was awarded a PhD from the University of Liverpool.
