Dr Joyce Coker is a Research Associate at Cambridge Public Health. She has a background in Human Physiology and Public Health. During her PhD (University of Leeds, 2015), she used a mixed method approach to examine the influence of statin-use on the health beliefs and health behaviours of adults at risk of cardiovascular disease in South Yorkshire, England and in urban and semi-urban cities in Nigeria.

She is currently the programme coordinator of the public mental health programme of National Institute of Health and Care Research (NIHR) School of Public Health Research (SPHR) and works on projects which aim to evaluate and optimise the use of community resources to support the mental health and wellbeing of older adults living in the community. Her research interests include improving the care and wellbeing of older adults, especially frail older adults living in the community; mixed methods studies; and realist-informed approaches.
