I am a Senior Lecturer and Health Psychologist appointed in both the School of Education (People, Place and Social Change Research Group) and School of Psychology. I am a pluralist researcher but my starting point involves using a variety of qualitative techniques and recent innovations in the field such as photo-elicitation, to uncover and document the complex narratives associated with lived experiences. I am also researching in the field of open science in terms of its implications for research and teaching in qualitative methods. My interest in lived experiences range from older adult food insecurity, adjusting to chronic illness, resilience in later life, lifelong learning and wellbeing, and post-graduate adjustment to studying abroad.

I am interested in supervising on themes that combine perspectives on psychology as it related to issues of learning, health, resilience, adaptation. I am also keen to work with students who are interested in applying qualitative or mixed methodology in their studies. I also organise community events for our PGR students - such as 'walkabout' tours (see poster below!)
