My research largely aims to enhance the health, wealth and wellbeing of people using light-touch and low-cost mechanisms, also known as nudges. My methodology has been largely guided by the Behavior Change Wheel or the Consolidated Framework for Implementation Research.

My work is published in peer-reviewed academic journals, e.g. Social Science and Medicine and BMJ Quality and Safety. I have given invited talks for the Experimental Philosophy Group UK on research methods and for the Department of Health on ‘Nudge’ mechanisms. I have developed projects with external organizations including (but not limited to) McDonalds, Orbit Housing Association, Citizen Advice Bureaus, JobsCentres Plus, and University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust.
