About me

I am a Research Fellow at the Centre for Appearance Research, UWE Bristol. I'm working as part of a team on a project funded by the Vocational Training Charity Trust (VTCT) Foundation to develop psychological support, training and public education on visible difference in the UK.

Currently my primary research is on the application of mindfulness-based therapies (such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) in improving people's body image and overall health and wellbeing. This forms the subject of my ongoing DPhil (PhD by portfolio). 

I am also interested in male body image, masculinity and the experiences of men who have visible differences. I am currently working with Alopecia UK on a project exploring men's experiences of alopecia.

I teach on the Level 1 Introduction to Psychology module, with a particular interest in social pscyhology and individuals differences. I also supervise undergraduate and Masters' dissertation projects.
