Professor, School of Psychology, Cardiff University

My research covers the areas of Occupational and Health Psychology with the major emphasis being on well-being. Specifically, I have conducted extensive research on the non-auditory effects of noise on cognition and health. In addition, I conduct research on stress and fatigue in both the workplace and life in general. My interests in health psychology cover two main themes: health-related behaviours (effects of nutrition, caffeine and chewing gum on behaviour) and minor illnesses (psychosocial risk factors for susceptibility to colds and influenza; effects of upper respiratory tract infections on mood and cognition).
