Dr Matthew Peacock
Academic and research departmentsSchool of Health Sciences, Governing Plastics Network.
My first degree was in English Literature followed by a conversion degree in Psychology, leading to MScs in Research Methods and Applied Social Psychology and eventually a PhD focused on the Psychology of creative processes. I have since been building experience in research work, specialising in qualitative research methods and investigating topics as diverse as Food Labelling, Responsible Research and Innovation, ethics in social care, adoption of mobile health devices and marine plastic pollution. The bulk of my time is now devoted to exploring the world of non-medical prescribing, in particular amongst dietitians and radiographers.
