I joined the University in 2008 as a Senior Lecturer in Psychology, having previously worked at the University of Central Lancashire, and for the Open University. I graduated from the University of Edinburgh with a first class degree in Psychology in 2003, and gained an MSc in Research Methods in Psychology from the University of Liverpool the following year. I then moved to the University of Central Lancashire, where I began my teaching career and doctoral studies, which I completed in 2010. My PhD involved examining the relationship between self-perceptions of physical attractiveness and self-esteem, and my current research interests include the self, interpersonal relationships and mental health.
