Sarah Wild



I joined the Department of Education in 2019 as a research and teaching support officer in Psychology in Education. The role focuses on helping staff and students with their research, providing training on specialist equipment, and improving knowledge of qualitative and quantitative research methods for psychological research.

Prior to this, I completed a BSc in Psychology and MSc in Psychology of Child & Adolescent Development. During my MSc I worked part-time as a Psychology & Education technician and as a research assistant. In this role I worked on multiple projects on adolescent development in regard to eating and exercise behaviours, drug use at festivals and novel psychoactive substance use in prisons.
