I am a Lecturer in Psychology in the School of Psychology at Ulster University. I am also an external research supervisor for practitioner doctorate students at the University of Roehampton. At Ulster am Course Director for the BSc Psychology programme, I teach developmental psychology, applied social psychology, and qualitative research methods. I also supervise undergraduate and masters dissertation students. As external research supervisor at Roehampton, I co-supervise the research of a number of PsychD students.
As a critical social and developmental psychologist I am interested in social justice and diversity, particularly so in terms of sexuality, age (as in older people), gender, and ethnicity. My current research interests are focused around how aspects of diversity intersect to shape people’s meaning making and lived experience in relation to resilience, minority stress, and social justice.
I hold a BSc (Hons) Psychology (First Class) award by Kingston University, an MSc in Social Psychology (Merit) and a PhD in Psychology, both awarded by University of Surrey. I am currently training to be a counsellor with PCI College, Belfast.
