Professor of Health Psychology, University Head of Research Ethics


As head of research ethics my role is to protect research participants and the University's reputation by ensuring through regular review that the university's research ethics policies and procedures meet UK legal requirements and European Commission directives and the requirements of external bodies who fund and/or support university research. I manage the implementation of university research ethics policy across the university to ensure that research undertaken by undergraduate students, postgraduate students and staff complies with national and international ethical standards. I oversee the development of systems to help ensure the integrity of research at Sheffield Hallam University. I chair the University ethics committee, oversee policy implementation across the 4 faculties and represent research ethics across the university on a range of committees. I provide quality assurance of the ethics and independent scientific review systems. I chair the faculty research ethics committee and I also teach, undertake research and supervise doctoral students.
