I am undertaking my PhD within organisational psychology here at the University of Exeter. I also work within academia, based within Bath Business School as a Senior Lecturer; current teaching responsibilities lie within organisational behaviour

Broad research specialisms

My research interests centre on organisational behaviour, organisational psychology and the role of women in view of the considerable advances they have made within work organisations. I am also interested in research pertaining to social identity theory, equality and diversity in the workplace and the notion of ‘hidden’ experiences of intersectional identity within the workplace.
