Research interests

I completed my undergraduate, MSc and PhD at the University of Glasgow, UK. During my PhD, I investigated the role of social connectedness, support and loneliness in relation to trichotillomania (hair pulling). My research has developed a measure for trichotillomania using the situated assessment method (SAM2) developed by Barsalou and colleagues. I am interested in mental health, BFRBs (body-focused repetitive behaviours - e.g. hair pulling and skin picking), grounded cognition and social connectedness and support. Please get in touch if you have any questions or wish to collaborate.
