I am a Teaching Fellow in Psychology in the School of Psychology at Ulster University. I am a critical social and developmental psychologist interested in diversity and social justice. I teach social and developmental psychology. I also teach qualitative methods. I supervise undergraduate dissertation students who are interested in examining issues of diversity and intersectionality as well as PsychD students whose research methodology or topic of interest intersects with my own. My current research interests are focused around how aspects of diversity (sexuality, age, race) intersects with and impacts upon the experience of higher education. I am currently guest editing, along with Professor Peter Hegarty and Valentio Viechetti, a special issue of Psychology of Sexualities Review focused on intersex research.
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 hold Fellowship of the HEA and am a graduate member of the British Psychological Society. I am active in the Society being a member of the Social Psychology Section, the Psychology of Women and Equalities Section, and the Psychology of Sexualities Section.
