I am a fully-funded PhD researcher in the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) at the University of Sheffield. Prior to joining ScHARR, I was a consultant for an Occupational Psychology business in London and worked in management development within the financial services industry. I am currently working with Sheffield International Venues (SIV Ltd) to identify, deliver and evaluate behaviour change interventions to drive improved activity amongst their leisure customers.
