Practicing (Health) Psychologist with the Health Care Professions Council, UK.
I conduct research in the public understanding of risk and decision-making around risk. Two foci are on tensions between decision-makers’ goals to manage risk and to manage anxiety, and the heuristics they use for decision-making. Research at a basic level tests the hypothesis that risk perception is a motivated process, and at an applied level addresses risk perception and decision-making in various health promotion areas and patient-practitioner decision-making in cancer care. I develop innovative teaching courses, anchored in theoretically-based teaching strategies, that simulate the professional challenges that students will face upon graduation.
