She is the director of HERA Lab, a cross-university group researching in health and wellbeing.As a senior lecturer in Psychology at the University of Gloucestershire, and course leader of our new MSc Health Psychology programme, her teaching explores how physical and mental health and wellbeing are created through communication between the brain and body, and draws on her interests in political and social psychology.
