I completed my PhD at Sussex in 2013 under the supervision of Viv Vignoles, during which I investigated how context – cultural, social, and physical – affects people's identities, motivations, and interactions. I then worked with Helga Dittmar and Robin Banerjee, again at Sussex, on the Children's Consumer Culture Project, studying materialistic and appearance motivations, identity, and wellbeing among children and young people.  

Later in 2013 I moved to work at Cardiff University with Tony Manstead and Toon Kuppens (now at University of Groningen) on a project investigating the impact of education and inequality on people's identities, wellbeing, and socio-political attitudes. In July 2014, I came back to Sussex as a lecturer in psychology.
