Research Interests

Suzanne is particularly interested in research surrounding the recovery of military personnel. She has worked closely with The Royal British Legion and Ministry of Defence to evaluate the impact of the newly provided Battle Back Centre on the recovery of Wounded (battle casualties), Injured (non-battle casualties) or Sick (physical/mental illness) (WIS) UK Servicemen and women. Notably, the personnel attend a 5-day Multi-Activity Course which uses adapted sport and adventure as vehicles for personal development. Her doctoral thesis used a mixed methods research design to establish the impact of the 5-day programme and explore its role within the recovery of UK WIS Service personnel. Findings from this research have and continue to disseminated in a number of settings, both on a national and international stage.
