Overview

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 help with promoting international students' wellbeing and social inclusion in UK higher education.  Specifically, we would like to examine:

  • International students' mental health and wellbeing;
  • How social identity unlocks psychological resources for wellbeing;
  • Whether structured communication between groups (international students and UK students in this project) can generate felt understanding;
  • Whether felt understanding relates to positive group relational outcomes (e.g., positive perceptions of ingroup-outgroup relationship).

Broad research specialisms:

Social identity, intergroup relations, wellbeing, open science
