About me

I received my PhD in Psychology  from the University of Bath in 2019. My thesis explored individual and cultural predictors of mate-retention strategies by combining experimental and correlational designs. In 2019-2020, I worked as a Research Fellow at Kingston University London on several projects exploring predictors of antisocial behaviour among children and adolescents across cultures. In July 2020, I joined the Centre for Culture and Evolution at Brunel University London as a Lecturer in Psychology. In August 2022, I moved to the University of the West of England to take on the position of Senior Lecturer in Psychology. 

My main research interests lie in the areas of human sexuality and interpersonal relationships and I combine evolutionary, social, and cross-cultural approaches in my research. I have a particular interest in understanding how individuals preserve and protect their romantic relationships against the threat of infidelity as well as understanding factors that contribute to relationship satisfaction and conflict between romantic partners, including intimate partner violence.
