I’m a Lecturer in Psychology and began working at Abertay in 1999 part time and became a full-time lecturer in 2006, having previously taught Psychology at the Open University and at Dundee College.
My research interests focus on gender differences and on women – for example changes in psychological functions, mood and wellbeing relating to phases of the menstrual cycle.
I hold an MA (Hons) Psychology and an MSc in Applied Computing, both from the University of Dundee as well as a PgCert HET and an MPhil from Abertay University. I’m also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA)
I have been a STEM ambassador since 2009 and am actively involved in outreach activities including judging Big Bang Scotland.
I currently teach research methods and statistics in second and third year and at postgraduate level. I am module lead for PSY206 Essential Research Methods and Analysis for Psychology and GRS501 Research methods. I teach into PSY303 Advanced Research, Design and Analysis, PSY210 Research Methods (Direct Entry) and contribute to PSY410 Psychology Honours Project.
