My research interests are in young people’s happiness and well-being and materialism. 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 a Level 4 Module, Debates in Psychological and Critical Thinking. I am Deputy Module Leader for the BPS core Level 5 module Cognitive and Developmental Psychology, in which I lead the Developmental half of the Module.
