Personal profile

Research Statement

I am a Lecturer in Quantitative Research Methods in the School of Psychology at Queen’s University Belfast. My background is in social and personality psychology, with expertise in assessment, psychometrics, and latent variable modelling applied to various domains, primarily mental health and psychopathology. Since 2016, I have been researching and teaching psychology, psychometrics and statistics at different faculties and higher education institutions across the UK. I am an experienced and enthusiastic R user and instructor.

My research focusses on the intersections between personality and identity, answering the questions as to how individuals differ in their identity perceptions and to what extent that influences their capacity to deal with adversities and affects their mental health. I am also interested and actively researching in the area of psychological assessment, including scale development and the study of the cross-cultural adaptability and invariance of measures.

I am a member of the International Society for the Study of Individual Differences (ISSID), the British Society for the Psychology of Individual Differences (BSPID), the European Association of Personality Psychology, and the  Affect, Personality, and the Embodied Brain and Groups, Identities, and Health research networks.

I am an Editorial Board member for BMC Psychology and Personality and Individual Differences.

I teach on a range of modules and supervise BSc, MSc, PhD, and Post-Graduate students’ research.
