My PhD research lies in the area of preventative health psychology, specifically relating to skin cancer and the tanning behaviours of individuals. I have also been involved in research concerning the psycho-social outcomes of adults who had cranio-facial conditions as children.
I am generally interested in health behaviours of individuals and the factors which contribute to individuals making decisions/performing actions regarding their health.
