Professor Dr Cathy Bulley, PhD, BSc (Hons)
Professor Cathy Bulley (PhD, BSc (Hons) is a Professor in the Dietetics, Nutrition & Biological Sciences, Physiotherapy, Podiatry & Radiography Division. She is also co-director of the Centre for Health, Activity and Rehabilitation Research (CHEARR).
She trained as a Physiotherapist at QMU between 1994 and 1998, and studied for her PhD between 1998 and 2002, conducting a mixed methods study that focused on young women and their behaviours, experiences, and personal meanings and feelings relating to exercise and physical activity. She worked clinically after completing her PhD but soon moved into research again through conducting a needs assessment of lymphedema services in Fife. This led her to interest in using audit, service evaluation and research to advocate for people who are living with different long-term health conditions and for the people in their lives – families and informal carers. She has worked with people living with the impacts of breast cancer and its treatment, lymphedema, stroke, multiple sclerosis and renal disease. She takes a pragmatic approach and uses quantitative and qualitative methodologies as appropriate to ask and answer questions from different perspectives.
