    Vision Statement

    Understanding how real-world problems can be addressed by the scientific evidence-base has always been what has interested me about a career in research. I want my work to address important health and wellbeing issues through developing and evaluating interventions informed by clear theoretical thinking, rigorous systematic approaches and the evidence about what is most likely to be effective in bringing about positive change.
