Having worked for local government and council across the UK for many years, working as long term unemployment officer, Opening JET (jobs enterprise and training) centers, Housing solutions officer and sheltered housing manager, I have always had an avid interest in understanding the difficulties and challenges imposed by socio-economic status. Given this, I decided to pursue a more academic career. In 2014 I graduated from Staffordshire University with an honors degree in psychology. During my time at Staffordshire I also represented the university as school advocate was voted NUS delegate 2013 and completed a SAP (student, academic project) in the area of community engagement.
During my final year I was awarded an ESRC 1+3 studentship at the University of Exeter, with my MSc being completed in Social and Organisational psychology here at Exeter as the first year of my studentship.
Broad research specialisms:
My main research interests broadly lie in the field of urban regeneration and social identity, incorporating social cure. I am also interested in areas of community psychology, intergroup contact, gender and feminism.
