Personal profile


I am PhD researcher at the School of Psychology, Ulster University. I completed my BSc (Hons) Psychology and MSc at Queen’s University Belfast; I also hold a PGCE in Secondary Science education from Edge Hill University. My research interests are in attachment theory in adulthood and the application of the Adult Attachment Interview (AAI) and how this can inform clinical research. I am currently investigating attachment in care-experienced and adopted adults and using qualitative analysis alongside the AAI analysis. Supervised by Professor Tony Cassidy (primary) and Dr. Marian McLaughlin.

I am actively involved in the Northern Ireland branch of the British Psychological Society where I am the postgraduate representative for Ulster University. I am also the Northern Ireland Branch representative for PsyPAG (Psychology Postgraduate Affairs Group, 2020-2022)
