I am a research fellow on the CUSSH project (Complex Urban Systems for Sustainability and Health), a multinational collaboration at the forefront of improving environmental sustainability and health in cities. My focus on the project is around participatory engagement and integrating approaches from behavioural science and system dynamics. I am also able to provide consultancy, training and mentorship to individuals and organisations wishing to incorporate behaviour change theory and practice into their work.

Before joining UCL I was appointed Royal Holloway’s first Research and Development Coordinator in psychology, where I established new initiatives in research infrastructure, oversight and impact. Previously I was seconded to the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology to write a briefing on age-friendly cities. My doctoral research (funded by the UK Ministry of Defence) focused on developing new methods for studying interpersonal coordination using virtual reality and motion tracking technologies.
