My work seeks to advance the understanding of the mechanisms underlying the relationship/health link, especially earlier on in the lifespan. In the main, my studies have investigated attachment style in relation to objective, physiological markers of well-being.
I am an Associate of the Psychophysiology and Stress Research Group, University of Westminster and the Centre for Abuse and Trauma Studies, Middlesex University. For the latter group, I also work as a consultant and accredited trainer for the Attachment Style Interview.
