Research Funding

The aim of my research is to translate basic-level, fundamental, science and apply it to the real world in order to improve community safety and the health of our communities. My work is multi-disciplinary, crossing psychology, neuroscience, economics, medicine, public health and other disciplines and typically involves practitioners and policy makers. All projects have a clear impact pathway, whether that is to inform policy and practice directly or to seed further work such as an implementation trial.  Methods include "big data" data linkage projects, randomised controlled trials, computer modelling and simulation and various other approaches
