Research interests

My research and teaching as a Doctoral Student cover mechanisms of behavioural change for caries prevention, focusing on the patient-caregiver relationship and motivational processes. I study how these processes work and how they can be developed into practical and acceptable caries interventions.

In addition to the above, I am also teaching qualitative research methods.
