My current research is broadly in the area of women's wellbeing; specific projects include female self-harming behaviour in general and social psychological factors implicated both in engaging in self-harm and in recovery as well as the construction of notions of 'risk' and 'resilience'.
I teach in the social psychology programme.

Social and community psychology; mental health and well-being, particularly women's; social construction and stigmatisation of mental health/illness; self-harm (including suicidality); psychology of girls and women.
My research interests are centred around psycho-social factors in the wellbeing of young people, especially young women. These interests include
- initiation and cessation of deliberate self-harm, especially in young women, including help-seeking.
- anti-social behaviour
- resilience amongst young 'at risk' women.
I have also published on public perceptions of the forensic use of DNA, and research methods.
