My main research interests are the placebo and nocebo effects, particularly their influence on, and relationship to, treatment efficacy. Beyond this, I also have an interest in the variety of factors that contribute to the poor management of gout, particularly the relationship between illness perceptions and treatment adherence. At the moment I am working on the GAPP Trial, a randomised controlled trial examining the efficacy of a mobile application designed for people with gout in improving adherence to urate-lowering therapy.
