About

I am a Lecturer in Psychology within the UDOL team at the university. I completed my undergraduate degree in psychology at the university of Lancaster. During this, I worked part-time in a cognitive psychology lab. I then worked in the private healthcare sector before beginning a PhD at Birmingham City University in which I examined social prescribing.  I worked as an Associate Lecturer for 4 years during my PhD teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Research interests

My research interests focus around health and social psychology. In particular, I research into social prescribing, healthcare data, and wellbeing.
