Audrey has a particular interest in health information literacy and community participation. Her major research projects include:
- Net.Weight. This project was funded by the Department of Health and examined the potential of ICTs for providing information and support to people trying to manage their weight. More information is available on http://research.cmis.brighton.ac.uk/netweight/
- Informing Health. A project which was funded by the Community University Partnership Programme at the University of Brighton and which explored how public libraries and other health information providers can work more closely with local communities to support health information needs more effectively.
- Health Information in the Public Library. A project with Brighton and Hove City Library Service investigating how public library users look for health information in the public library and the experiences of users and library staff in accessing health information.
- A project for the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) to investigate the potential of digital technologies in care homes for the elderly. The study explored the feasibility of ICTs to support the communication and information needs of staff using a mix of questionnaire, field studies and participative workshops.
- A workforce planning study of the museum, library and archive sector in the South East Region for the then SEMLAC (subsequently MLA South East).
