15 Last checked 1 July 2020


I am a Principal Research Fellow/Associate Professor in the Centre for Applied Health Research. A Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society, and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

For over 20 years, I have co-created research with policymakers, health and social care professionals, businesses, charities, workers and their families to raise awareness of the health-supportive nature of work. 

Research Expertise and Interests

My ongoing aim is to challenge the default, (over)medicalised and individualised narrative around work disability, much of which is avoidable.  I believe the solution to this global problem is to adopt a holistic approach - acknowledging that health is interdependent and empowering people to become their own authority on health at work.

Drawing on the methodology and practices of knowledge mobilisation and science communication, I co-create research with and for the people who need it - ensuring it is accessible, meaningful and useful.

I currently lead a Knowledge Transfer Partnership between the University and Swiss Re - one of the world's leading reinsurance companies. We are co-creating an innovative gamification approach that will empower people to navigate a positive and sustainable return-to-work journey.
