About me

My academic work and experience centres around individual differences in well-being and socio-cultural adaptation, and how they can be studied within multicultural social contexts. My research projects between 2014 – 2022 have been around HE student well-being and transitions, with various foci on aspects such as extenuating circumstances, the experience of students from underepresented ethnic groups, international student experience, assessment and feedback. Currently my work is focusing on two aspects, (1) UG students’ psycho-social well-being and their sense of community during COVID-19 and online learning; and (2) well-being of students and their career aspirations and employability.

My PhD research focused on the psychological well-being and socio-cultural adjustments of international doctoral students in the UK, using longitudinal questionnaires and interviews. As a mixed methodologist, I have worked with quantitative and qualitative research methods in psychology and education, including mixed effects modelling, thematic analysis, and narrative analysis.

I also work as a research volunteer for a charity foundation for student mental health, and previously as a mental health champion for staff mental health at universities (as part of the Mentally Healthy Universities initiative with Mind).

I am an active member of the Psychological Sciences Research Group (PSRG).

Area of expertise

Mental health and well-being in Higher Education, staff/student well-being, socio-cultural adaptation, and intercultural practices in Higher Education.
