Geoff completed his PhD in 2019, which looked at how public health policymakers and practitioners can respond to anabolic steroid use in the UK. He used qualitative methods to identify priorities to address in this area and applied socioecological and complex systems perspectives to explore ways to respond to these needs. He has particular interests in understanding health and social behaviours and behaviour change, and the development of interventions, policy and guidance. His research projects have most frequently focussed on substance use and addiction, mental health and wellbeing, the environment and sustainability, and physical activity.
Geoff has experience delivering undergraduate and postgraduate courses and supervising student projects. In particular he has supported delivery of research methods modules with a focus on qualitative methods, evidence synthesis and study skills. He is interested in systematic review methods and has developed and delivered modules and training courses to students and researchers in this area.
