Faculty of Health Sciences and Sport
Role: Director of NMAHP Research Unit
Research interests: I have been involved in health services research for over 30 years, focusing on the quality and delivery of care and common mental health problems. I have been involved in several European research collaborations tackling suicide, depression, and now mental health in the workplace.
I also have significant involvement in research on maternal mental health, child and adolescent mental health, and substance misuse and mental health studies. Being almost entirely research focused for my whole career has meant that I have often become involved in many different topic areas that require methodological skills or through PhD supervision.
This has stretched me into areas of diabetes care, pelvic floor dysfunction and even experiences and services for those with lower limb amputations. That is the wonderful world of research - every day is a new learning opportunity.
