My long-standing research interest is fluctuations in human performance and their use as a biomarker for neuropsychiatric conditions. For this line of research, my main methodology is single trial event-related potentials, and I am also interested in the development of this technique.

Since moving to the North Wales Clinical Psychology Programme, I have developed an interest in the relationship between the area where people live and their mental health. I am particularly interested in this in the context of the linguistic geography of Wales and in social gradients in mental health. Here, my main methodology is spatial epidemiology and its application to routinely collected clinical data.

Teaching and Supervision

I support the research activity of trainees on the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology course (DClinPsy). This includes formal teaching in research methods, statistics, and psychometrics, as well as supervision and ad-hoc support of trainees in their thesis projects.


I am learning Welsh and you are welcome to contact me in Welsh or English.
