Personal profile


I hold a BA (International) in Psychology from University College Dublin (UCD) and an MSc in Social and Cultural Psychology from the London School of Economics (LSE). Before pursuing my doctoral training, I held research posts at the University of Stirling and the University of Strathclyde.

I was awarded an ESRC studentship to pursue my doctoral research on social identity and representation in anti-deportation campaigns at the University of St Andrews. Since completing my doctoral work, I have held research posts at the University of Glasgow (Institute of Health and Wellbeing) and the University of St Andrews (School of Psychology and Neuroscience). I took up my current post at the University of Dundee in 2019.



My current work is part of a large European research project (MisMie) which investigates experiences of misrecognition, whereby members of minority groups feel they are viewed as not belonging to the society in which they live. We aim to explore the role that surveillance plays in these experiences, and how feelings of acceptance and belonging are affected. 

Previously, I have developed and conducted research investigating a range of topics, including ingroup behavioural transmission, prosocial behaviour in the context of migration, identity and stress amongst medical professionals, and patient experiences of cancer treatment. I use a variety of qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods approaches in my research.
