I have worked with young people in various contexts for the majority of my working life. I recently gained a first class honours degree from Canterbury Christ Chruch Universiverity (CCCU) and during my studies worked as a Research Assistant for Psychology department staff. I have been employed as an Instructor at CCCU since September 2016. Alongside this role I am completeing a PhD and my research interests lie in the interactions between mothers and their children in particular, the language mothers use with their children and subsequent child development.
I am a member of the departments' Learning and Development Research group involved in discussing and developing ongoing research. In my previous research assistant roles I supported colleagues exploring scaffolding, mental state talk and adolescent bullying and was engaged in data collection and coding. I have attended specialist mind-mindedness coding training with Professor Elizabeth Meins at the University of York. My own research interests lie in the construct of mind-mindedness (reflected in the way mothers talk to and about their children) and the naturally occuring individual differences that occur in levels of mind-mindedness.
I have experience of delivering seminars in academic study skills (Key Skills) and in a Social and Developing Self module, both at Level 4. I am co-convenor for the Graduate Attributes in Psychology module (L4) commencing September 2017.
I am a member of the British Psychological Society.
