(He/ him)
Chair professor, Cardiff University

I am a Professor and Deputy Director of Population Health Trials in the Centre for Trials Research and DECIPHer (Centre for Development, Evaluation, Complexity and Implementation in Public Health Improvement) in Cardiff University, and have an honorary contract at the University of Bristol. The focus of my research is to understand how social, psychological, biological, behavioural and genetic factors from across the life course, influence behaviours which effect health and chronic diseases of major public health importance: cardiovascular disease and mental illness. The ultimate aim of this body of research is disease prevention.
