I am professor of clinical and health psychology. I have previously worked as an academic at the Universities of Cardiff and Bristol and as a clinical psychologist in the NHS. The primary focus of my research is on how people respond to, and cope with, significant threats to health; and how brief psychological interventions may mitigate any associated problems. More broadly, I am interested in applying experimental approaches to the study of health psychology. I have (co-) authored three major textbooks on clinical and health psychology.
