Personal profile

Personal Statement

My primary role is the development and delivery of an Online MSc Psychology with a Specialisation in Business Course.  I design and deliver high quality research-led teaching materials in Psychology, establish and undertake learning, assessment and feeback activities, and supervise undergraduate and postgradute student dissertations. I am interested in online education and ways to improve its delivery to benefit our students.

My research interests include cognitive function and rehabilitation following brain trauma, factors that influence perceptions of cognition, cognitive measurement, physical activity, sedentary behaviour and methodologies. I have been involved in a number of research projects with stroke survivors, with the aim of improving psychological and physical health outcomes, examples include a cycling intervention in stroke and positive psychotherapy in those with acquired brain injury.
