I completed my undergraduate degree at Swansea Metropolitan University (now UWTSD) in 2013, graduating with honours in Counselling Studies and Psychology. Following this I began my teacher training journey and successfully completed my PGCE (PCET) in 2014. I completed supervisor training within the School of Psychology at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David and subsequently joined the team as a full-time lecturer in June 2014 with Higher Education Academy (HEA) fellow status.

Since joining the Psychology team I have studied for, and completed, an MSc in Applied Social and Health Psychology and am qualified to administer, score and interpret Occupational Psychology personality (NEO-PI-R) and ability tests, as recognised by the British Psychological Society. I have continued to maintain my status as a registered and qualified test administrator and am active on the RQTU.

My academic interests are firmly rooted in Occupational Psychology and I am particularly interested in aspects of recruitment (psychometric testing), organisational behaviours and gender differences and bias at work.

I am a member of the following professional organisations / divisions:

  • British Psychological Society [BPS; Graduate Member]
  • Welsh Branch of the BPS
  • Division of Clinical Psychology [BPS]
  • Faculty of Addictions [BPS]
  • Division of Occupational Psychology [BPS]
  • Division of Academics, Teachers and Researchers [BPS] – Full Chartered Member
  • American Psychological Association; Division 50: Society of Addiction Psychology [APA]
  • Fellow of the Higher Education Academy [FHEA]
  • Named test user on the Register of Qualifications in Test Use [RQTU; BPS]

My areas of teaching include Occupational Psychology, research methods, analysis and statistics, and areas of individual differences. I have led on a variety of undergraduate modules in these areas across my career so far and have supervised upwards of 30 dissertation students, mainly in topic areas such as risky decision-making and risk-taking, occupational behaviours, and predicting engagement in risky forms of behaviour based upon individual differences.

My research interests are firmly rooted in contemporary workplace behaviours. I have a keen interest in aspects of selection and recruitment methods used within organisations, and the use of psychometric testing to select employees effectively. I am also particularly interested in the application of many social psychological theories to the world of work and have a keen interest in aspects of equality at work including, but not limited to, the consideration of gender bias within the workplace and the ways in which individuals may face discrimination at work because of their physical appearance.
