I’m an NIHR Advanced Fellow at the Centre for Primary Care and Health Services Research, a practising GP and a Registered Health Psychologist. My research interests include the application of digital technology and psychological theory to improving patients' experiences of primary care.


After qualifying with a BSSc in Psychology from Queen's University Belfast, I completed a PhD at the University of Leeds and worked there as a Research Fellow before returning to student life to study Medicine. I finished my medical degree in 2010, completed my academic foundation training in York, was a NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow in Sheffield during my GP training, and then moved to Manchester to take up a post as an NIHR Clinical Lecturer in Primary Care.
