Personal statement

My research interests are in young people’s happiness and well-being, and relationships with parents and peers. I am also interested in transitions to higher education and in supporting students with their employability.

I joined Bath Spa University in February 2020, having previously taught Psychology in the School of Education at Bristol University, and at the University of Bedfordshire.

I am Module Leader for the core Level 6 module Developmental Psychology, and I am Deputy Module Leader for the core Level 5 module Qualitative Psychological Research Design and Analysis.
