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 – 2020 have been around HE student well-being and transitions, with various foci on aspects such as extenuating circumstances, BAME student experience, international student experience, assessment and feedback, and currently on UG students’ psycho-social well-being and their sense of community during COVID-19 and online learning.

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.
