Personal profile

Biography

I joined the University of St Andrews in 2022 as a Research Computing Technician within the School of Psychology and Neuroscience, supporting research and research-based teaching. Since then, I have begun a PhD, working with Prof Steve Reicher (School of Psychology and Neuroscience) and Dr Fergus Neville (Department of Management, St Andrews Business School).

Prior to arriving at St Andrews, I spent five years at the University of Dundee working as a Research Assistant across multiple research labs. In that time, I also completed a BSc (Hons) in Psychology and a MSc in Psychological Research Methods.

I am a Graduate Member of the British Psychological Society.

Research overview

My research interests are inherently social: how we interact with our world and how that world affects us. More specifically, I am interested in group behaviour, leadership, and rhetoric. Alongside this, I have a keen interest in historical psychology and the history of psychology—distinctly different things—as well as how we conduct research.

My PhD explores the relationships between performer and audience at live music events.
