Research

Research interests

My research interests align heavily with my teaching responsibilities as Unit Chair for Health Behaviour, and broadly cover two areas:

Scholarship of Teaching Learning- with particular emphasis on:

  1. Determinants of student success, engagement, and retention,
  2. Use of feedback and other online technologies to ensure positive student outcomes even in large cohort settings,
  3. The role of self-regulation in the learning process (especially for online learning), and
  4. Applications of feedback and learning principles in clinical populations (such as individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder).

Health behaviour change:

  1. The application of health behaviour change principles to improve healthy lifestyle choices in the general population as well as at-risk groups,
  2. Development of risk models based on psychosocial determinants of poor health behaviour.
