The principal themes of my research are psychological well-being or positive mental health, and the relationship between emotion and cognition. Two distinct methodologies are used: experimental and epidemiological. Experimental research includes randomised trials of well-being interventions such as mindfulness training, and mood induction studies. Epidemiological studies include analysis of data from the 1946 British birth cohort study and the European Social Survey (ESS) to establish the associates and predictors of well-being and positive mental health, and their association with health-related behaviours, attitudes, values and early experiences. Studies include the effects of mindfulness training on cognitive and physiological responses to induced stress.
