Profile

My academic background lies in cognitive psychology and psycholinguistics, with clinical experience in the NHS on stroke units and private sectors in both adults and adolescent’s mental health services. My research and teaching concerns qualitative and quantitative research methods; cognitive and psycholinguistics; cyber, social, and health psychology.

In terms of student supervision at the University, I am currently focused on cyberpsychology and projects related to online dating. 

I am currently part of a collaborative project between the University of Sheffield and University of Huddersfield assessing health literacy levels among University students in the North of England.

My PhD research aimed to further our understanding of the organisation of the bilingual lexicon by investigating how words belonging to different languages are stored and accessed. I am particularly interested in interlingual homographs; these are words from different languages that are orthographically identical but differ in meaning.
