Jamie is a Psychology PhD student working in collaboration with the University of South Wales conducting research funded by GambleAware. The focus of this project relates to the development of harm reduction interventions for bespoke risk environments in the changing landscape of gambling and gaming. Jamie is a member of the Addictions Research Group (ARG) at USW. Jamie has previously conducted research into the psychological effects of embedded gambling promotion within football alongside the recall and awareness of gambling sponsorship within sports amongst children, young people and adults. Currently, Jamie is focusing on the perceptions and experiences of young adults in relation to gambling advertising within the UK alongside a review of operator advertising strategies from a public health perspective. Future research will aim to develop methods for consumers to mitigate gambling-related harm associated with such advertising.
