Personal profile

Research Statement

Currently, I am the lead PhD student on the PaCT Project, which collaborates with primary and secondary schools across Northern Ireland. My PhD focuses on a wider spectrum of personality in parents, including the Big Five, Dark Triad, and Mental Toughness, as well as parental acceptance-rejection. In adolescents, I assess personality traits, including the Dark Triad and Mental Toughness, perceived parental acceptance-rejection, and behavioural outcomes. This study aims to provide a comprehensive look at the broad picture of how parent personality, adolescent traits, and contextual factors (e.g. parenting, SES) interact to produce adolescent outcomes. As part of this research, I utilize network analysis, a novel statistical technique that presents relationships between variables as a graphical model. I believe that this research is important as it may provide the building blocks for future interventions targeting children and families

Research Interests

I am interested in a range of research focused on personality psychology, development, resilience, and parent-child interactions. I am able to collaborate on many of these interests as a member of the InteRRaCt Lab, which is directed by my supervisor, Dr. Kostas Papageorgiou.
