Personal profile


I completed my BSc (Hons) in Psychology in 2020 and my MSc in Applied Developmental Psychology in 2021 at Queen’s University Belfast. I started my PhD at QUB Belfast in 2022.

Research Focus

I am interested in the role of resilience and post-traumatic growth, as protective mitigating factors of suicide. My PhD is to explore these mechanisms in the context of exposure to trauma and post-conflict Northern Ireland. My PhD is supervised by Dr. Karen Galway and Dr. Mark Linden, and is a collaborative project between QUB and an industrial partner, MindWise. 

I am a member of netECR (an international network of Early Career Researchers working in suicide and self-harm).
