My main undergraduate teaching areas are Developmental Psychology, Individual Differences and Social Psychology.

Modules I teach on include: 

  • Understanding the Self
  • Developmental and Social Psychology

  • Individual Differences across the Lifespan
  • Social Psychology
  • Social Knowledge and Identity
  • Society and Psychology

My main research interests lie at the intersection of the individual and the social, including the ways in which knowledge and identity are constructed.  Specifically:

  • The ways in which people draw upon historically-rooted culturally-based understandings as symbolic resources for making sense of the world.
  • The ways in which embodied knowledge, skills and practices impact upon identity formation.
  • People’s ability to identify and engage with political activity within their communities
  • The power of social and physical locales to constrain and facilitate the ways in which people are able to engage with education and imagine futures in education and work.

Current research project:  ‘Late Diagnoses of Specific Learning Differences: Managing Identity and Engagement’

PhD: ‘Imagining Futures in Changing Locales: De-industrialisation and education/work interfaces’. A contribution to social psychological theory.

Qualitative methods and analysis, including interviewing, focus groups, photo-elicitation methods, mobile methods, mixed methods.
