Can help with: I’m always happy to catch up for research-related, or general chats! For research specifically, I am more than happy to help where I can with questions about systematic reviews, qualitative research, and giving a health psychology perspective. I work from home permanently so it would be great to connect with others when possible, including discussing ways to promote wellbeing when working remotely.

What’s essential to your well-being? Outside of work: my cat Garfield, house plants, season ticket at Wolves, knitting, baking, and vintage shopping. In work: meeting regularly with my supervisor and research team, collaborating with other multi-disciplinary researchers.
