Carly has worked at MMU since 2010 and joined the department of Psychology in 2013 during which time she has been responsible for the supervision of a number of 3rd year project students, MSc students and various undergraduate units. For the academic year 2016-2017 Carly will not be contributing to the undergraduate provision, except as a moderator.
Carly is currently Unit Lead for two units on the MSc Psychology conversion award - Qualitative Methods in Psychology and Conceptual and Historical Issues in Psychology and Psychotherapy (CHIPAC).

My work specialises in people's experiences of chronic conditions and in developing tools to improve people's health related quality of life. My PhD is on representations of irritable bowel syndrome and as a Health Psychologist, I have worked both clinically and as a researcher in the field of smoking cessation. Most recently, my work has focussed on resources for sharing information with a systematic review on communication passports and the development of the NF File which is a pilot project that has been funded under the Research Accelerator Grant Scheme.
I am Admin for the Childhood Tumour Trust neurofibromatosis 1 information and support group on Facebook. My commitment to patient engagement and participation led to the development of both innovative research and knowledge exchange activities and has ensured collaborations with various charitable organisations, people with neurofibromatosis and genetic specialists. I am also trustee of the charity the Childhood Tumour Trust.
