Lewis completed his BSc in Applied Psychology at Plymouth University in 2011 and continued his development by undertaking an MSc in Psychological Research Methods there from 2011-2012.  During these degrees, he undertook projects exploring the cognitive and affective benefits of acute exposures to both visual and auditory natural environment stimuli. Lewis joined the University of Exeter in 2012 on an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded interdisciplinary PhD studentship in Health and Well-Being as part of the South West Doctoral Training Centre (SWDTC) strategic partnership.  He was based jointly at the Psychology Applied to Health (PAtH) research group at the University of Exeter Medical School and the School of Sport and Health Sciences. During this PhD, he studied how environmental quality, landscape type, and promotional materials affected the practice of physical activity in natural environments.
