Jodie is completing a PhD at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) focussed on women’s drinking and gambling. The project is supervised by Professor Carol Emslie, Dr Andy McAuley, and Dr Matt Smith. Jodie’s qualitative thesis will explore how women gambling, how gambling and drinking are connected in the lives of women and how population-level factors such as marketing and availability influence behaviour.
Jodie is also the Research and Projects Co-ordinator at Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems (SHAAP). As a part of this role, she is responsible for the organisation and co-ordination of the Scottish Alcohol Research Network (SARN).
