I completed my doctoral research at Leeds Beckett University in 2017, with the thesis titled Constructions of Gender and Humour in Technology Work: A Feminist Poststructuralist Analysis. Prior to this, I completed my BSc (Hons) in psychology at Sheffield Hallam University, and worked as a software engineer for a company providing clinical software to the NHS and other organisations.
Very broadly speaking, I’m interested in critical feminist psychology, qualitative research, and technology. If you want to get specific, I’m super into Internet memes. No really though. Get me talking about memes and we’ll be here all day.
I currently teach on the undergraduate and postgraduate psychology courses at Leeds Beckett University, including both onsite and distance learning provisions. I cover a range of topics within psychology including qualitative and quantitative research methods, statistics, social psychology, and dissertation supervision. I run our Level 5 elective module in cyberpsychology, and have also worked as a distance learning tutor in psychology for the Open University.
I serve on the BPS Psychology of Women and Equalities Section (POWES) committee, previously managing the social media and web presence of the section, and currently working as conference lead for the annual POWES conference. Between 2013 and 2017, I worked as co-editor of the International Society for Critical Health Psychology (ISCHP) newsletter and blog.
Outside of research and teaching, I enjoy photography, crafting, tinkering with code, bottomless cups of tea, and pulling stupid faces in pictures.
