Personal profile

Personal Statement

I joined Psychology at Strathclyde in September 2004, following a MA (Hons) and PhD in Psychology at the University of Glasgow. My PhD was in cognitive psychology, specifically visual attention, and I still supervise projects in this area. Recent research projects have used qualitative methods, one to develop an understanding of children's experiences of doing Parkrun, and another on the psychological impact of food poverty. 

In addition to my role in the School of Psychological Sciences and Health, I am Associate Dean Student Experience in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (2018 - 2020).

Teaching Interests

At undergraduate level, I am class leader for Research Methods and Data Analyses (C8321) and the final year Psychology Work Placement class (C8437). I also teach on Introduction to Research Design and Analysis (C8203), and research methods classes on three MSc programmes: MSc in Research Methods in Psychology, MSc Clinical Health Psychology, and the online MSc Psychology with a specialistion in *Business (conversion). I supervise several honours and MSc dissertation projects each year.
