Personal profile

Research interests

I am a social and health psychologist with particular interest and expertise in risk: public appreciation of risk, risk communication and risk management. Other research interests include the increasing integration of digital technology with our everyday lives and the social implications of the way we engage with new forms of data. 

My current research projects are exploring loneliness, public understandings of tree and plant pests and diseases, the challenges of eating out for people with food allergy and intolerance, fostering trust and empathy online, policy engagement with new forms of data, and new models for delivering health and wellbeing social prescribing.  


Willing to supervise PhD
