I am a Research Associate based at DECIPHer (Centre for the Development and Evaluation of Complex Public Health Interventions). My research interests are focused on the effect of school organisation and health improvement activity on students' health behaviours. Much of my research investigates the synergy between health and educational outcomes in an attempt to align health with the "core business" of schools. I am also interested in the conceptualisation of schools as complex adaptive systems through employing mixed methodology, including social network analysis, qualitative interviewing and statistical analysis.
