Research Overview

I conduct both discipline specific and pedagogic research, with approximately 100 peer reviewed journal articles published to date. Psychological research interests include coercion and harassment, especially in relation to personality and individual differences. Pedagogic research focuses on Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion practice and policy. Recent publications include the single authored book, Disability in Higher Education: Investigating identity, stigma, and disclosure amongst academics, published by the Open University Press in 2022.
