I joined Born in Bradford in November 2021 as part of the Youth Endowment Fund project on Youth Resilience, linking with Obesity Trailblazer work and Qualitative Longitudinal Research arm of Age of Wonder. My research background and interests lie in social inclusion and belonging. I completed my BSc degree in Psychology at the University of Dundee in 2016 before moving to University of St. Andrews to complete my MSc in Research Methods in Psychology. After a year away from research and studying, I returned to University of Dundee to study for my PhD in Psychology. My PhD research explored the ways in which organisations may signal inclusive or (inadvertently) exclusive organisational identities for diverse groups.
