Personal profile

Research interests

Jennifer graduated with a BSc in Psychology from the University of Stirling in 2006 and went on to do an MSc in Health Psychology, also at the University of Stirling, graduating in 2010. Jennifer began her PhD at GCU in 2011 and in 2017, successfully defended her thesis to become a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society. Jennifer's PhD involved using an extended Reasoned Action Approach to predict and explain ‘at-risk’ online older adults’ condom use intentions and inform the development of a future tailored intervention(s). 


Jennifer joined the Safeguarding Health through Infection Prevention team at GCU as a Research Associate in October 2015. This role was funded by the Scottish Government via the Scottish Infection Research Network and arose from GCU being a partner in the Scottish Healthcare Associated Infection Prevention institute (SHAIPI). Jennifer worked across various applied infection prevention and control research projects, bringing together her interests and expertise in infectious diseases, psychological theories and models of behaviour and behaviour change, and intervention development, implementation, and evaluation. Jennifer was also responsible for coordinating public involvement activities for the Community Network (ChaiN) for SHAIPI.


Jennifer is currently a Research Fellow with the Sexual Health and Blood Borne Virus Research Group at GCU, working on the CSO-funded project 'Optimising services for people at highest risk of HIV: Developing best practice in delivering HIV PrEP through evaluation of early implementation across Scotland'.
