About me

About me

I am a Knowledge Exchange Fellow with the Salvation Army Centre for Addiction Services and Research. I hold a PhD in Psychology from the University of Southampton and MRes and MA degrees from the University of St Andrews. My background is in addiction research, particularly in smoking cessation and harm reduction. As well as conducting research, I have also worked as a specialist stop smoking advisor for the City of London during my post as a Research Health Psychologist at Queen Mary University of London. At the Centre I am contributing to the ongoing research into addictions and interventions as well as undertaking various knowledge exchange activities.
