I joined Aston University in 2016 for the newly created position within Psychology of Graduate Teaching Assistant. I support the delivery and assessment of taught materials across the Psychology programmes. Alongside these responsibilities I am completing my PhD, part-time with an expected submission date of December 2022. I am supervised by Dr Rachel Shaw and Dr Dan Shepperd (associate).
My current research seeks to understand individuals’ experiences of living with chronic invisible or 'unseen' illnesses within the wider context of austerity-informed UK welfare reforms. My work takes a 'pluralistic' approach; that is combining phenomenological and discursive approaches to consider both the micro and macro implications of government policies, from a health/social psychology perspective.
