I completed my PhD at Sussex in 2012 under the supervision of Viv Vignoles, during which I investigated the importance of context - cultural, social, and physical - to 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 well-being among children and young people.
In 2013 I moved to work at Cardiff University with Tony Manstead and Toon Kuppens (University of Groningen) on a project investigating the impact of education and inequality on people's identities, well-being, and socio-political attitudes. In July 2014, I came back to Sussex as a lecturer in psychology.
