Dr Graham Moore
I began my career working part-time in research clinics for the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC) during my MSc studies in the University of Bristol. Around this time, I also began working part time in the Cardiff Institute of Society Health and Ethics (now the Cardiff Institute of Society Health) as a data collector on the evaluation of the Primary school Free Breakfast Initiative. A full-time post became available on this project and I was appointed as a Research Assistant in June 2005. Subsequently, I was successful in applying for funding for an ESRC 1+3 studentship, completing the MSc in 2006/07, and submitting my thesis in August 2010, which focused on the development of process evaluation methodology within the trial of the National Exercise Referral Scheme in Wales. During my studies I taught on a number of psychology and social science research methods modules, and provided part-time statistical support to a range of projects within CISHe, the School of Social Sciences and the Office of the Chief Social Research Officer in the Welsh Assembly Government. Projects included an evaluation of the impacts of smoke free legislation on children’s secondhand smoke exposure and a cross sectional examination of links between children’s family contexts and their drinking behaviours. From October 2010, I became a core member of staff for the Public Health Improvement Research Network, in a role providing support to the development of public health research bids.
