Biography I am an Associate Fellow of and Chartered Member of the British Psychological Society, and a member of their Health and Forensic Divisions. I am an active researcher in the areas of forensic psychology and applied health research, with an overarching theme of decision science pulling these two areas together. I am passionate about developing useful, theoretically sound interventions and outputs from my research. I collaborate across multidisciplinary teams, also working closely relevant stakeholders to make my research as applicable to real practice as possible.

In my forensic psychology work, my main research interests lie in clinician decision making in risk assessment (violence, suicide and policy). I am keen to explore feasibility in risk assessment practices and decision making processes and biases, and have published extensively in this latter area. I am trained in the HCR-20v3 (and the older version 2), the PRISM, and the SAPROF.

In my applied health research, I have worked in person-centered care, outcome measurement, and intervention development using novel techniques. The key focus is on developing clinically useful research which can be translated to or adopted into day to day practice.
