I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Cumbria, graduating in 2013. I then went on to study for my MSc at the University of Portsmouth, graduating in 2015. My background is in criminal psychology, with emphasis on the treatment and rehabiliation of female youth offenders. My current research focuses on positive mental wellbeing in postgraduate students, in particular research students, and their access to university-based support.
