Professor of Occupational Health Psychology, Birmingham City University

As Professor of Occupational Health Psychology, Craig is interested in the wider effect of workplaces and working on people’s health and psychological wellbeing. Specific interests include violence and safety in the workplace, unusual and rare occupations, work-related suicide, technology change, pesticide exposures, working hours, stress, research techniques, neurobehavioural methods and psychological assessments.

For over a decade Craig has also studied mass shootings as an occupational issue and investigates how workplaces (campuses, offices, public buildings) can be made safer from such attacks. He developed and runs an undergraduate psychology module "The Psychological Understanding of Mass Killing" on a BSc Psychology with Criminology programme. He appears regularly in the media discussing the psychology behind a wide range of news stories such as stress, crime, violence, working life, health issues, lifestyle, and ethics.
