Research overview

My research sits in the intersection of social psychology and organisational studies, focusing on the sociopsychological processes underlying the impacts of societal and organisational inequalities on individuals in their different social and individual identities. I'm also interested in exploring and examining the role of organisations in inequality reduction, particularly in the context of Fair Work Initiative Scotland. As a quantatitatve researcher, I mainly utilise experiments, surveys, and path analyses (mediation, moderation, moderated mediation) in my work.
