“I am an applied social psychologist, passionate about understanding how the social identities we belong to help us to understand more about ourselves and how we interact with others. I am interested in understanding biases, barriers and challenges that individuals face as members of specific identity groups and how we can use theory to better understanding and work towards breaking these barriers. I am currently working towards my doctorate degree. My thesis involves understanding the political groups of the EU Referendum and 2016 US Presidential Election from a social psychological perspective. I am investigating voters perceptions of group belonging, political identity and social value ideals to assess the potential for bias activation in this context. This feeds into the main aim to determine what views are differentiating voting groups as a way to initiate further understanding to suggest methods for reducing prejudice and discrimination.”
