Miss Jo-Anne Puddephatt

Research Assistant

Research Area

I currently work in addiction on three projects related to alcohol use working with specific populations, such as veterans and middle-aged females screening for hazardous alcohol consumption. I have a keen interest in evaluating alcohol intervention research and how they may be enhanced to meet the needs of disadvantaged populations.


Jo-Anne is a second year PhD student at the University of Liverpool. Her research focuses on understanding the patterning of alcohol use and mental health problems and how this pattern changes among different social groups. Jo-Anne’s PhD involves using mixed methods, such as managing large datasets and conducting qualitative interviews, to identify those at most risk of having a co-morbid alcohol and mental health problem. 

Jo-Anne has previously worked on collaboration projects in the field of addiction within veteran and heavy drinking populations, and has contributed towards the development of an alcohol app intervention.
