Profile summary

I am a part-time postgraduate researcher supervised by Dr Kate Gee. I completed my undergraduate degree at Canterbury Christ Church University in Psychology. I am also a university instructor within the psychology department, in which I run seminars in first year research methods.

My research focuses on how electronic interventions (websites, SMS, Apps and wearable technology) can be used to help students cut down their drinking.

'Online interventions to help cut down heavy drinking in students.'

Supervisory team 

  • Dr Kate Gee - 1st supervisor

Research outline

So far in I have carried out a meta-analysis looking into the effectiveness of online-interventions in student’s populations at cutting down excessive drinking and I will be looking to send it for publication. Further on down the line I will look into the development or use of an app/or website as an intervention to support students in cutting down excessive drinking.
