After completing a BSc (Hons) degree in psychology and criminology, I completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Education. I have worked as a lecturer of psychology in UK higher and further education since 2008, further to working as a research assistant from 2009 to 2013 on projects funded by the Home Office and The Royal College of Radiographers. Currently, I lecture across psychology undergraduate and postgraduate levels from foundation year through to master’s degree modules and supervise final year dissertations relating to social psychology concepts.
My PhD explores trait emotional intelligence and resilience trajectories of bullying using progressive mixed methodology. My research interests include: social-ecological and hierarchal models to explain elements of human behaviour; victimisation during adolescence; adolescent bullying roles; trajectories of adolescent bullying in adulthood and social hierarchy factors that relate to trait emotional intelligence. Further to this, I am developing a keen interest in exploring hierarchal models that explore human-animal interactions and human-environment relationships.
