I am passionate about research related to the below themes. If you are undertaking, or thinking of undertaking, research, evaluation or a project in similar areas, I would welcome a conversation to discuss how we might collaborate.
Current research interests
- The impact of one-to-one conversational techniques within medical education on self-efficacy, motivation and confidence. Selected techniques include: the solution-focused approach, solution-focused coaching and non-directive questioning
- Whether the exploration of previous positive experiences (within the solution-focused coaching approach) creates enduring knowledge (‘resources’) and whether these influence future resilience and confidence
- Personal tutoring and academic advising within medical education and/or higher education
- Effective boundary setting with students within medical education and/or higher education
