Personal profile

Personal Statement

I joined the University of Strathclyde in 2018 as a researcher of the government-funded project ‘Equally Safe in Higher Education’ (ESHE). As part of this project, I undertake research on the extent and range of gender-based violence on Scottish campuses. This is in an effort to inform universities and government and, subsequently, to prevent, intervene in, and better support staff and student who experienced gender-based violence. As part of the prevention work stream of the ESHE project, I also deliver bystander training to interested staff and students.

Prior to this, I gained a PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of Edinburgh and then worked at the same institution as postdoctoral researcher in 2018. I also hold a master’s degree from the University of Edinburgh and a first degree from Queen Margaret University.

Previously, I worked as Assistant Psychologist at a third-sector organisation where I developed and delivered a Trauma Awareness Workshop to adult survivors of child abuse and/or domestic violence. I have also delivered several undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the past in subjects such as research methods, trauma, and mental health. In 2016, I have been awarded an Associate Fellowship from the Higher Education Academy. I also conducted research for a governmental organisation as part of a 3-months PhD internship, and conducted research for an NSPCC project on deterrence of child sexual abuse online. I am a founder of the Scottish Developmental Psychology Network (ScotDPN) run by and for doctoral and postdoctoral researchers in Scotland with an interest in developmental well-being across the life span.
