I graduated from The University of York with a Master of Research in Psychology in 2016. I am now studying for a PhD in Psychology, funded by the Principal’s PhD Studentship in Equality and Diversity. My project is examining the cognitive mechanisms involved in stereotype formation and I will later be applying these findings in more practical research on equality and diversity in higher education.

I have previously worked in areas such as social attitudes, sexuality, and personality, which I continue to be interested in. I have a dog called Gherkin.
