I joined the department in October 2021 as an Associate Lecturer in Psychology in Education. Previous to this I worked as a Research Consultant at York Economics Health Consortium as a reviewer after completing my PhD in 2019.

My academic background lies within psychology and neuroscience. I am particularly interested in understanding behaviour and the neural basis of attitudes, and how we can implement current knowledge into education. More than anything, I am passionate about helping students achieve academic and personal growth.

Departmental roles

I am a member of the Decolonising Education Collective (DEC). I am passionate about providing an inclusive, representative, and global education for all students.
