I am a research student in the School of Computing at Edinburgh Napier University and I am currently studying towards a PhD in Information Science. I moved from my hometown of Sunderland in Tyne and Wear (North East England) in August 2015 to begin my PhD adventure in October.

I hold a BSc (Hons) in Psychology from Northumbria University and graduated in January 2013 with a MSc in Developmental Psychopathology from Durham University.

Prior to starting my PhD, I completed a nine-month research internship with Dr Debora Jeske between December 2014 and September 2015. Whilst completing my internship, I also worked for the National Careers Service as an Adviser, focusing on giving advice and guidance in their main contact centre service. Before this, I worked to gain a variety of paid and voluntary work experience in the Psychology-related area, including roles of an Assistant Psychologist, specialist mentor and higher education support worker. My research interest developed during a voluntary placement in the Psychological Research Services of Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust whilst studying for my degree.
