Job Title and Responsibilities
Lecturer in Psychology
I completed my undergraduate (BSc) and MRes degrees in Psychology at the University of Birmingham, in which my main area of research was cognitive development in young children. Since completing these degrees, I have held a number of research posts assessing different aspects of child development. In 2013, I started my PhD at the University of Warwick; investigating the social and emotional attributes associated with bullying involvement in adolescence. My thesis was submitted in September 2017, and my viva is scheduled for November 2017; when I hope to be awarded my PhD.
PhD Psychology (to be completed): ‘The Social and Emotional Profiles of Adolescent Bullies, Victims, and Bully-Victims’, University of Warwick, 2017
MRes Psychology, University of Birmingham, 2010
BSc (Hons) Psychology (2:1), University of Birmingham, 2005
My main areas of expertise are child development, social development and aggressive behaviour.
I am interested in how our social and emotional behaviour develops throughout childhood and adolescence, and how this influences our interactions with others.
