Fahimeh has a thorough working knowledge of social science research methodologies in both qualitative and quantitative approaches. She has extensive experience of conducting systematic literature reviews on the impact of greenery and psychological health and well-being; designing qualitative and quantitative surveys, interviewing and coding in NVivo and thematic analysis; conducting statistical analysis in SPSS and developing advanced multivariate structural modelling in Partial Least Squares-Structural Equation Modelling (PLS-SEM).

In her PhD, using PLS-SEM, she developed a quantitative multivariate model of psychological restoration experience in green environments for promotion of university students’ mental health in the context of university campus. Through this model, Fahimeh tested and suggested the mediation and moderation effect variables as well as perceptual and restorativeness characteristics in investigation of mental health promotion effect of green environments.

She is currently working on the Going the Extra Mile (GEM) project and two Natural England Framework projects in CCRI.
