Academic Tutor

I have a BSc in Psychology and MSc in Psychological Research Methods from the University of Sunderland. I am currently a PhD student exploring the psychosocial impact of gastrointestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease.

Teaching and supervision

I currently teach across the BSc Psychology courses on the module Genes to Mind and the Integrated Foundation Year for Psychology on the module FDN002. 


I am primarily interested in health and wellbeing. 

My PhD is concerned with how, and why, gastrointestinal conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease impact psychosocial factors such as subjective wellbeing and social relationships/support. I intend to explore the experiences of individuals with these conditions using a mixed methods approach.
