Kath Maguire

I joined Plymouth University and PenARC in 2019 to undertake a PhD investigating social prescribing and horticulture therapy for autistic adults, having completed a master’s degree in Health Psychology in 2018.

I have previous experience working as a research assistant and assistant psychologist in respiratory health and pain management services at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro. I also worked previously as a research assistant for a trial in Surrey exploring assistive technology for dementia, and in administrative roles for community mental health services.
