    Accepting PhD Students

    PhD projects

    I would be happy to speak to any potential PhD students who have an interest in behaviour change, long-term conditions, and quantitative methodology (specifically mediation analysis and/or longitudinal analysis)

    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    My PhD investigated design and analysis issues when conducting mediation analysis, which is a statistical technique that can help us understand whether psychological interventions work in the ways we think they do. My thesis specifically included examples of musculoskeletal pain populations. Before coming to Aston I worked as a Research Associate at Keele University on a number of projects within primary care settings, focusing on patients with musculoskeletal pain. I have also worked on a number of projects investigating symptoms and signs of cancer.

    I also have an interest in the analysis of longitudinal data, particularly where this relates to physical health symptoms.
