Personal profile


After receiving a BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science, Maxine stayed on to complete a PhD in physical activity and public health at Loughborough University. During the PhD write-up phase, Maxine began working as a postdoctoral researcher to conduct a process evaluation of Public Health England's Clinical Champions' Physical Activity Training Programme. This national training programme aimed to deliver training to healthcare professionals across England to promote the delivery of physical activity advice to patients during routine clinical interactions. Maxine then joined the University of Oxford's Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences to work on a project exploring the feasibility of a multi-component digital self-management tool to support patients with COPD hospitalised for an acute exacerbation. She also supervised undergraduate medicine students to develop and publish systematic reviews and meta-analyses around digital health technologies. Now within the Centre for Intelligent Healthcare at Coventry University, Maxine's research interests focus on how to make feedback more meaningful and potent for positive behaviour change and the development and evaluation of digital health interventions for people living at risk of, or with a diagnosis of, long-term conditions.

Research Interests

Digital health technologies; prevention and management of long-term conditions; physical activity measurement; physical activity promotion; behaviour change; self-monitoring; feedback

Vision Statement

To deliver meaningful research that positively impacts health outcomes. Maxine aims to build on existing experience of working in a collaborative way, building connections and working with people from different backgrounds, including (but not limited to) healthcare professionals, psychologists and engineers. She is also keen to design and evaluate digital health interventions that align with real-world needs to do research that can impact clinical practice and public health.
