Research

Research interests

Leanne's current research investigates factors that influence the development of depression in people with chronic physical illnesses.

Research projects

Predictors of depression in people with inflammatory bowel disease.

Leanne works with Professor Chris Dickens and colleagues at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital gastroenterology department, on a CCUK-funded project investigating causes of depression in people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The project will also explore the links between depression and worse health outcomes, including relapse, in people with IBD.

 

Perseverative negative thinking and depression in people with coronary heart disease.

Leanne's PhD investigated the role of perseverative negative thinking (such as worry and rumination) in predicting depression, anxiety and quality of life in adults with coronary heart disease. Her PhD research included:

  1. A systematic review of prospective research into the association between perseverative negative thinking and emotional distress in people with long term conditions.
  2. An observational prospective cohort study to investigate the association of worry and rumination with subsequent depression, anxiety and health-related quality of life following acute coronary syndrome. The cohort study also explored potential mediators of this association. See the project webpage here.
