My research focuses on how individuals and families adjust when affected by a long-term health condition, especially multiple sclerosis (MS). I am also involved in developing and evaluating mindfulness interventions to improve adjustment in people with long-term conditions.
Research methods I have used include: qualitative methods (thematic analysis/ grounded theory); cognitive interviewing; questionnaire development and psychometric validation; longitudinal quantitative methods (multilevel modeling); single case experimental design; systematic review; randomised control trial; neuro-imaging.
