I joined Loughborough University in March 2018 as Professor of Behavioural Medicine in the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences (SSEHS).

My expertise is in lifestyle interventions with a particular focus on women’s health. I have published extensively on topics including pregnancy, postnatal depression and the menopause.

I am the chief investigator on several ongoing trials, examining the success of community and general practice-based support programmes for physical activity and weight control.

I was formerly a Reader in Behavioural Medicine at the University of Birmingham’s College of Medical and Dental Sciences.

I have long admired the work of the SSEHS and I am particularly enjoying working with colleagues at the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine (NCSEM).

Together I’m confident we will do research that will make a real difference to the health of the population.
