My research interests are in social identity and self-categorization processes and their impact on health and well-being. My research examines the idea that the way in which people make sense of and engage with health (broadly defined) is shaped by, and impacts upon, their social identities. I have previously conducted studies into the effects of self-categorization on health, examining the way in which social identity draws people towards certain lifestyles. With colleagues and students at the University of Exeter Medical School, I am extending on these ideas in clinical contexts, where there is frequently a need for interventions to promote better health (e.g., weight-management; rehabilitation). Within PenCLAHRC, I am involved in the Group Singing for Aphasia project and teach on the Making Sense of Evidence workshops
