I am a Research Associate with a background in Health Psychology. I am based in the Cancer Screening, Prevention and Early Diagnosis (SPED) team in the Division of Population, School of Medicine. My doctoral degree focused on understanding the psychosocial influences on quit motivation and smoking cessation among older smokers from deprived backgrounds.

I'm currently working as a qualitative researcher on the Provision of smoking Cessation services for lower socio-economic groups (PROCESS) Study (funded by Cancer Research UK).
