Personal profile

Biography

Albert joined the University of Dundee (School of Health Sciences) in 2019, following 6 years at the University of Birmingham (Institute of Child Health and Institute of Applied Health Research) working across the University of Birmingham and the Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

Albert is a social psychologist with a background in applied health research, interested in adolescent health, implementation science and complex interventions. His work relates to the psychosocial aspects of health/illness and healthcare behaviours, focusing on the experiences of patients and health professionals to inform the delivery of health services and public health programmes.

Albert’s current research interests are informed by two broad interrelated concerns: (1) How change, innovations and complex interventions are implemented and routinely embedded in health professionals’ everyday work practices; and (2) The role of psychosocial approaches and holistic care practices in medical/clinical work and healthcare provision/delivery.
