I’m a clinical psychologist and a mindfulness researcher, teacher, trainer, supervisor, and practitioner. Before moving to Oxford in 2019, I was a Professor of Psychology at the University of Kentucky, where I conducted research on mindfulness and taught and supervised several mindfulness-based programmes in a doctoral programme in clinical psychology. My scholarly interests include conceptualization and assessment of mindfulness, effects of mindfulness-based programmes, mechanisms of change, and harm and adverse events in mindfulness practice. I am also very much interested in professional training and ethics in the mindfulness field.
