Biography

My PhD investigates the processes involved in the ‘Social Cure’ – the finding that group memberships are good for people’s health and well-being.  I am particularly interested in both advancing the theory of the social cure - why and how group memberships enhance people’s well-being - and in applying the theory of the social cure to maximise the benefits of groups for the well-being of prisoners.
