I completed my PhD in health psychology at Birkbeck, University of London, where I was supervised by Professor Jonathan A Smith.

My PhD used interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA) to explore the experience of living with and being treated for end-stage renal disease. Since then, I have worked on projects at the universities of Hull, Bristol, Manchester and Portsmouth as well as UCL, researching topics including adherence to HIV medication and the wellbeing of GPs. I have expertise in qualitative methods, particularly IPA and thematic analysis.

I have published a wide range of papers, which you can check out on my Google Scholar Profile. I continue to do academic work as a freelance researcher.

In addition, I have worked as a sub-editor and proof reader for many years. I spent around a decade as a sub-editor in London, working on magazines and newspapers including the Independent and the Radio Times. I am now based in Bristol, where I run my freelance proof-reading business and occasionally work as a sub-editor on the Bristol Post.
