Biography

I have an interest in all areas of forensic psychology, but I'm currently working on my PhD which focuses on the experiences of intimate partner violence (IPV) victims/survivors across gender and sexuality. I'm passionate about IPV research becoming more inclusive, to include all victim groups.

I am also currently the editor for the University of Cumbria Psychology blog
