I am a senior researcher and departmental lecturer, a Fellow of Kellogg College, and a senior tutor in the CEBM.
My role is divided between research, teaching and outreach activities.
As a researcher, my main focus is on the prevention and treatment of lifestyle related conditions, particularly the role of physical activity and exercise. I am currently leading a programme of work assessing the evidence-base and role of physical activity and exercise in primary care as well as methods to improve its uptake and use for patient care.
I also have a keen interest in the communication of medical and health research to health professionals, patients and members of the public. Work in this area includes development of a one-page evidence summary tool to support better-informed treatment decisions funded by the School or Primary Care Research.
