Research Interests:

My PhD focuses on the impact of mental defeat on the experience of chronic pain utilising a mixed methods approach. This has potential to explain the response variation in chronic pain. Principally, I am investigating the potential of a causal association between mental defeat and factors considered key in the experience of pain. I am also using qualitative methodologies to explore how mental defeat may impact treatment-seeking in individuals with chronic pain.

More generally, I am keen to continue research in the wider area of clinical and health psychology, using principles to aid more focussed, multidisciplinary and long-lasting interventions in chronic pain.
