Personal profile


I completed my BSc (Hons) in Applied Psychology and MSc in Political Psychology at the University of Kent. I started my PhD at Queen's University Belfast in 2020.

Research Statement

My research aims to investigate and change negative attitudes towards gender equality initiatives (such as Athena SWAN) within Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. These findings will be used to develop game-based training to support these initiatives. My project is supervised by Dr Ioana Latu and Professor Rhiannon Turner.

I am a member of the Centre for Identity and Intergroup Relations.
