Research Focus

The proposed research, which concerns the legacy of The Troubles in NI, aims to cast light on how issues of identity, trauma and well-being are connected inter-generationally. The first two of these will comprise important tests of the Social Identity Model of Trauma and Identity Change (SIMTIC). The research will focus on both an older sample of parents who have experienced The Troubles first-hand and a sample of parent-offspring dyads. The findings can be expected to improve our understanding of the psycho-social dynamics of conflict, its propagation over time and the longer-term influences on collective identity, belonging and well-being which follow from it. This may enable researchers to develop future community-based interventions which may affect community relations.



I obtained both my Bachelor of Science Psychology degree in Queen's University Belfast (2020), and later completed my Master of Science degree in Applied Developmental Psychology in QUB (2021).

Research Interests

In addition to my primary focus at PhD level, I am also interested in political, gender, and biological psychology, and epigenetics.
