Health psychology; Drugs and Addictive Behaviours; Mental Health and Social Change 

My research interests are in the domains of health psychology and clinical health psychology. My current research activities concern studies of experiences of multisystemic therapy among young people; of non-drinking behaviour; of dark triad personality traits as predictors of health behaviour; and mental imagery interventions.
