I am currently a PhD student in psychology at the University of Exeter. Under the supervision of Dr Andrew Livingstone and Dr Anna Adlam, my research focuses on investigating whether the experience of feeling understood by others can explain the cultural differences in international students' wellbeing.  Based on this, we aim to develop practical interventions to improve social inclusion and wellbeing among international students.

Broad research specialisms:

Social identity, wellbeing, acculturation, communication, open research
