Personal profile

Research interests

Mark is a Postgraduate Associate in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at Northumbria, and a member of Fuse (The Centre for Translational Research in Public Health). His work lies at the intersection of psychology, sociology and public health, focusing in particular on the promotion of healthy ageing and how health inequalities can be addressed.

Mark is experienced in applying a range of research approaches to this area including Rapid Realist Review and Scientific Realist evaluation which were employed for his PhD in Public Health which investigated ‘What works to support family carers of people living with dementia.’ Thematic analysis also represents a research method of choice, particularly in the analysis of interview data. Mark has experience conducting quantitative analysis using SPSS which was applied during his MSc in Health Psychology to analyse data gathered from cortisol sampling.

Mark is currently engaged on several projects within the Department of Nursing, Midwifery and Health, including the development of an evaluation tool to assess Frailty pathways and an investigation of Leadership for Band 5 nurses.
