Educated at Cardiff University (BSc Psychology), Honor is also a graduate of Cardiff Metropolitan University (PhD, PgCTHE and MSc Health Psychology). After working as Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the National University of Ireland, Galway, Honor joined Cardiff University’s School of Social Sciences and Centre for the Development and Evaluation of Complex Intervention for Public Health Improvement (DECIPHer) in 2014 as a lecturer in quantitative research methods. She is also part of the Q-Step Programme, designed to increase quantitative social science training in the UK.

Honor’s research interests are in the area of health psychology and public health; including the social determinants of young people’s health, wellbeing and health behaviours, and the development and evaluation of interventions to improve public health. In particular, her research interests include intervention in educational settings relating to sexual health, sexual risk-taking behaviour and dating and relationship violence, and knowledge translation into public policy.

Honor has since been promoted to Senior Lecturer in the School of Social Sciences at Cardiff University.
