Personal profile


My research interests are in the psychosocial determinants of mental health and health inequalities. 

I am interested in the role of both individual and social factors in shaping health and wellbeing. One focus of my research is personality psycholology, and I have previously looked at the relationship between aspects of Extraversion and individual differences in happiness. Since completing my PhD, I have worked in several public health roles at the Glasgow Centre for Population Health, the Scottish Collaboration for Public Health Research and Policy and the Scottish Government. During this time I became interested in the social determinants of public health, and I am currently examining the role of stigma and discriminaiton in producing health inequalities. 

Current research activities

My current research activites include ongoing work into poverty-based stigma as a determinant of health inequalities, and projects examining how subjective social status is related to aspects of personality. I am also collaborating with colleagues from Napier University on research looking at the effect of population density on health outcomes. 

Desired research direction

I hope to better understand how personality and broader social factors contribute to health and wellbeing, in order to inform the developement and evaluation of novel interventions alongside partners from policy and practice. 

Target collaborative organisations

Health Scotland.

Scottish Government.
