I am an interdisciplinary academic, with research interests that span health psychology and affective neuroscience through to epidemiology, bridging the gap between biological mechanism and public health. Between 2013 and 2015, I was a Visiting Professor at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil, working on the largest study on the health and wellbeing of the Brazilian population. From 2005 until 2012, I was employed at the University of Sydney in Australia, supported by two NH&MRC research fellowships. Now as Professor and Personal Chair in Psychology at Swansea University, I have developed new models of health and wellbeing that are driving significant significant redesign of services in the healthcare sector.
