“I really enjoy teaching at the University of East Anglia and love the atmosphere on campus.  I feel lucky to be part of an excellent teaching team, which places great emphasis on the student experience, alongside the importance of research and community engagement.  I believe psychology is an amazing subject to study and I strive to ensure my teaching is always interactive and engaging by constantly evaluating my methods and approach.  With my research, I am very interested in applying psychological knowledge to real life settings, both in relation to everyday family life and in relation to the student experience.  I am currently exploring the role of social media in everyday life and the ways in which it can help and hinder our psychological health and wellbeing.”
