I completed my Bachelor degree in Psychology at the University of Manchester in 2015. Having worked for a year in the business sector, I returned to the same University for a Master of Research degree in 2016, where I developed a strong interest in qualitative research methods.
In April 2018, I started my PhD at the University of Edinburgh, under the supervision of Dr Sue Widdicombe. My PhD research sets out to learn how people report and describe lived racism, adopting discursive psychology as the main analytic method.

Current research interestsMy primary interest is to learn how people report and describe lived racism. I am keen to collect and analyse naturalistic interactions, where the agenda of describing racial encounters is set by the speakers (writers) themselves.
