I completed my undergraduate degree in general psychology at Canterbury Christ Church University. Following this, I spent three years volunteering in the third sector, and also working for an Organisational Psychology consultancy in Bristol. In 2015, I returned to university to gain an MSc in Social & Organisational Psychology from the University of Exeter. During this year, I was awarded a +3 studentship from the ESRC to continue my studies. Under the supervision of Dr Andrew Livingstone and Dr Joseph Sweetman, I am studying the process people go through when becoming engaged in collective action.

Broad research specialisms:

Prosocial action, collective action, emotional change, sustained social action, societal change.
