Research Themes
Research Summary

My research interests are focused primarily on health psychology. I am interested in projects into:

  • Public health (well-being, smoking, cancer, sexual well-being, lifespan ageing)
  • Positive psychology, resilience, and physical well-being 
  • Sexual well-being in regards to abnormal sexuality
To date my research has explored the biopsychosocial well-being of adults ageing with HIV in relation to both age and time with diagnosed HIV, and project relating to cancer and smoking, and adolescent health and well-being.
