Personal profile

Biography

I am a Senior Lecturer in Developmental Psychology. My approach is socio-cultural, I think we can not separate individuals and their emotions and actions from the contexts in which they live. This means my research has typically been ethnographic, combining observations, interviews and document analysis to understand the lives of children and young people. I am interested in the ways in which community membership shapes identities.
