My methdological expertise is the design, implementation and evaluation of complex interventions, including feasibility and pilot studies, full RCTs and process evaluations .

I was founding convenor of a premier research group within the National Cancer Research Institute (2012-2016) – Lifestyle and Behaviour Change Research Group. My research with Teenage Cancer Trust has been cited in the England and Scotland national cancer strategies and raised in the Scottish parliament. As a research leader in my field, I am regularly invited to review for national and international research funding bodies.  I am a member of the editorial board of two international journals.
