I am Professor of Health Services Research, and a behavioural scientist who is interested in improving behaviours to improve health. I am co-director of the Scottish School of Primary Care and Head of Research in the Department of Nursing and Midwifery at UHI. I have published over 125 papers in peer-reviewed journals. My methodological 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 an Associate editor of the journal Pilot and Feasiblity Studies.
