Current Role

I am currently an ESRC funded Cognitive Psychology student at Durham University. My PhD research explores the physiological correlates of stereotype threat and stress and their effect on cognition. The aim of our research is to develop interventions to counteract the effect of stereotype threat both physiologically and cognitively.

During 2021, I have worked with the EDI SAT as a PGR representative to tackle issues of equality, diversity and inclusion that the student body feels affected by within the Psychology Department at Durham University.
